On February 23rd, I went on a night dive at the Japanese ski boat area wreck. I put on the 100mm macro lens as I wanted to photograph the yellow tube anemones. I did not get the photo I had envisioned, but I think it was a decent start.
I then saw a large pufferfish, and was not able to fit much of the fish into my frame of view, but it was still pretty cool.
And THEN, I saw this coming at me (uncropped!)…and wished I had a 60mm macro lens:
Yeah, I know, you can’t see the eye, but I thought it was actually rather amusing.
This belonged to a filefish that was over 2 feet long!
Here’s the eyeball, also uncropped:
Now here’s a REALLY fun one:
How could that not be the happiest fish ever????
I did get a couple shots of the eye and mouth together, but they weren’t very good as the fish was either swimming away and/or I couldn’t get the focus and composition right. Here are the best.
