Love the leading lines and color separation on this shot. Perfect post and spot on focus! Not easy with a swimming subject!
Coleman shrimps seen through a magic ball lens
The sailfin blennie male attract females by flashing his huge dorsal fin in a blink of an eye. An almost impossible job to get it in the picture.

A hunting frogfish is always a nice encounter. The fleshy lure of the hairy frogfish makes it very recognizable. To get the lure as big as possible this shot was made with an Inon Macro Wide angle lens. Focus distance 0 cm.
