Found this critter during a drift dive, imagine trying to snap a pic of the fella while maintaining body position and not getting bubbles in the picture. Oh yeah, this fella was moving around a lot. Shot with Canon S90 with  no strobe :)

My favorite UW subject, the common pipefish. Hard to take pics of this fella, its constantly swaying left or right or shaking the head. Getting in focus was a challenge!
