The Flying Gurnard usually spreads its striking "wings" to intimidate potential predators. This individual seemed to be spreading them to prevent a neary unicorn fish from stealing its meal

Siaba Basar in Komodo National Park is a great site for a muck dive. We spotted this reef Cuttlefish before we'd even got started.
Carid Shrimps are far from shy, making themselves available to other reef creatures as cleaners. This one has chosen to make its home in a Bubble Anemone
Like most Butterflyfish these beaked coral fish are monogamous and are often found in pairs.
Fidler Crab
The carapace of the green turtle changes in colour and pattern throughout its life. Young adults like this one often have an olive brown colour. Green Turtles get their name from the green fat found beneath the shell.

A female Mallard enjoys the few rays of sun on a Winter Morning.
Squirrels were introduced to parks across the US in the late 1800s. An encounter with a central park squirrel may be the only positive natural intraction that many city dwellers had.
Blue Sharks are often accompanied by Pilot fish on the look out for scraps and parasites. Swimming close to the Shark in its slipstream is more effiecient but it can have drawbacks. This Blue Shark's sudden change of direction has knocked one of its companions upside down.
This yellow daisy was in the valley of the Sete Cidades. The contrast of light yellow and dark green gave me an oppurtubity to experiment with Split Toning
These aggressive little fish are smaller than your fist but will charge at you and even give you a nip if you get too close to their chosen Sponge.
This Sawblade Shrimp was determined to stay on the opposite side of the Whip coral. After a few attempts photographing the neighbouring corals to get the exposure right, I had to then compose a shot where I hoped the Sawblade would move to. With one hand supporting the camera I moved my free hand into the field of view on the other side of the coral. The Shrimp obliged and moved into position but I had to wait until it was happy enough that it didnt move back as soon as I moved my hand away before I could get this shot.
One of my first attempts at Underwater Photography with a strobe. After a whole dive taking photos of different Pink Anemone Fish at Chumphon Pinnacle in Thailand where I explored the effects of different settings and stobe positions, this is still one of my favourites.
These rays like to hide away in crevices during the day coming out to hunt in the sediment at night.
Baby Yellow Boxfish have a bright yellow warning colouration as juveniles but the colour fades as they age. This juvenile was found at Chumphon Pinnacle in the Gulf of Thailand.
