Damsel fish seeks photographers' attention

I took this photo on the western side of North Solitary Island , NSW 27th March 2005. This guy was feeling sad because he was not interesting enough for anyone to take photos of him. So to get some attention he dressed himself up with a bit of soft coral. I used a Nikon Coolpix 3200 with a Fantasea CP-3N housing. I took one frame to get this shot. Photocomp March '05 - Novice

Who goes there!

This was only the third underwater photo I ever taken! I snapped this little guy at Anemone Bay, North Solitary Island, NSW. I used a Nikon Coolpix 3200 Camera with a Fantasea CP-3N housing. I had waited some time for the anemone fish to rise into position and stay there long enough for me to get the shot. I probably took around five frames to get this shot. Photocomp March '05 - Novice
