"Take my picture!" On a liveaboard, a non-photographer kept asking me to take his photo on one of the dives. I tried to explain that I was using a 105mm! I finally took his photo so he would stop bugging me! Don't bother smiling!!! :D

Ring Tailed Cardinal Fish with Eggs.
He was under a table coral and swimming with 30 others (4 had eggs). Very difficult to focus 105mm in low light. Fish were too skittish to use focus light. D300/Inon Strobes/105mm.
