Shy Fish

IMG_4124This first fish is tiny, maybe about three inches. It’s hard to see and hard to photograph. Like most fish it swims away from anything big that has its eyes (and camera) pointed in its direction. So first you have to see it and then you need to get close enough to get a shot. I actually saw two together but they were inside a coral cave and it was too dark. You just have to feel lucky to get an opportunity for a shot at all. So I do… feel lucky.
