Shy Squirrel?


Today’s subject is a squirrel fish (I think).  These guys are very shy and always seem to dart away and go into crevices and under ledges when you get too close.  This one did exactly that but then just stuck the tip of his nose back out.  I had my strobe high above the camera shining down so I was able to get a good shot of him peeking out at me from the dark.

  2. Awesome photo, what were you shooting with? I’ve written a couple posts on diving, if you are interested: http://travelingchicha.com/2012/01/05/gopro-hero2-digital-camera-underwater-testing-in-bonaire-pictures-and-video/

    • Natalie,
      Nice posts on your early diving experiences – it only gets easier as you go. We have several hundred dives behind us now but still marvel at the completely different and alien undersea world. Its a great way to expand your experiences while reaching your age/country goals! OBTW – I used a Sony NEX-5N in a Nauticam Housing and a single strobe. It is a very capable yet small/light setup.

      • Thank you for reading and for the encouragement! I really appreciate it. Diving certainly has been a learning experience and I can’t wait dive again. I will be in Thailand in June… any recommendations?

      • Natalie, Haven’t dived in Thailand so I’m not much help. Our dives in Malaysia and Indonesia have been the best in our experience!

      • I’ve heard Malaysia and Indonesia are unreal! It’s on the bucket list!

      • The island of Sipadan on Malaysia is the best place we’ve ever been – great variety, large and small, and turtles everywhere you turn! The Lembeh Strait in Indonesia is incredible for small stuff. Both belong on your list! Mine still includes the Maldives for Whale Sharks.

    • Thanks Dianne – I always equate the undersea world to a bunch of alien beings because it is so different than what we are used to. A great privilege to be able to explore down there.
