Photo Friday: Portrait

July 25, 2014

For this week’s Photo Friday: Portrait challenge:  It took almost two hours to get this portrait of the tiny Redhead Coralgobies. Learning the nature of a fish is often key to getting a decent image. Coral gobies live deep within branching corals and often take the same path through those branches. Having the luxury of time to spend watching, waiting and positioning usually pays off (but not always).

We’re off the grid for a few weeks, diving in the land of coral gobies – aren’t they cute? We’ll try to post as soon as our boat comes in for provisioning, if we can find an Internet cafe. So don’t forget about us – check back soon for more fish fun.
