There are tiny fish that rest on the coral. If you sneak up they will let you take their picture. Imagine a big thing blowing bubbles, sneaking up on a tiny fish? I mean the thing is tiny.


Oh, say about a quarter inch. Less, for a change it’s a different fish story we’re exaggerating her. Suffice to say it’s small. So maybe it thinks I can’t see it if it doesn’t move.


Who knows? They do move…but if you sneak up and hold your breath. Yes, holding your breath helps. Blowing bubbles makes a hell of a racket. Trust me. I’ve heard my own breathing on video I’ve shot. I’m loud! I’ve done this before but never with a close-up lens.



Ho hum…it’s pretty common and not too hard to do. Next trick please….
