Watching this school of neon fusiliers being hunted by bluefin jack and dogtooth tunas was like watching NatGeo on TV, just better. To catch the movement I used a long shutter speed of 1/10th sec

Chill out! There was so much action going on around this lazy green turtle: squadrons of bluefin jack attacking the carpet of glass fish , tunas looking for an easy meal, anthias buzzing.

Healthy coral reefs like this one are becoming less common. Coral bleaching events are increasingly frequent, and ocean acidification and pollutants are other problems that corals are facing. But coral reefs support 25% of marine species.

While the hardcore in the shallows got hit badly by the 2016 bleaching, the soft corals are as beautiful as ever on the deeper reefs

Most shallow hard corals have unfortunately suffered bleaching in Maldives. But once you descend a few meters the soft corals are super nice and coral cover gets much better.
