Took a while to get my port right up to this little guy & to get the lighting right, but it was worth it! Canon 20D, 60mm macro, single Inon 220s strobe.
Pair of raccoon butterflyfish. Canon 20D, Canon 60mm macro, single Inon 220s strobe.
Leopard blennies have eye-crossing camouflage that helps them blend with their corals and they are terribly skittish. I've had trouble getting just one and so was very happy to get this pair on my recent trip to Cocos Keeling Island (Australia).
