i hope that's not the liveaboard you were on Dejan!
Scorpionfish portrait during a night dive. She cought and ate several small fish swimming by, but I couldnt manage to catch the moment... Olympus SP-350 has some shutter lag. 1/80 s, f/4.5, ISO 200
Female threefin blenny caught in June when sexual dimorphism is most evident. 1/100 s, f/6.3, ISO 200, super macro mode on Olympus SP-350, no flash
Those lobsters... favourite subject to shot but very difficult to get dark and blurred background, specially using internal strobe only. This one is somehow better, but I'll keep on trying.
school of Sarpa salpa from the Adriatic. Olympus SP-350, f/5, 1/125
