Right at the end of the dive I was hovering and doing my safety stop. Activity!? Ah! A pipefish was open and swimming on the bottom.
They are shy and just disappear under a coral in nothing flat. Get a shot? Move in. Zoom up. Get an image. Got it. Now try for something better. I can’t do it with the magnified diopter yet. My buddy who owns and knows the lens did the close-up.
Yes the close-up image is in my camera but he took the shot. I learned another trick. I’m now a fan of macro photography. Now, to get better at it… I can’t tell you which pipefish. It’s not exactly in my book. Oh well, I did not discover a new fish. It’s just not identified clearly in my book.
