I really enjoy diving.  Seeing cool critters is, for me, the best part.  And while I like I like pretty much everything I see down there, for some reason the puffers always make me smile.

Sometimes they’re shy and back away or try to hide.  But not this guy.  He’s just hanging and smiling for his close up.

Since somewhere along the way the metadata is getting stripped, here’s “hand made EXIF.” All of these shots are with Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the 12-50mm lens in macro mode (at 43mm) in a Nauticam housing. One Sea & Sea YS-100alpha strobe.

Ok, not the best shot ever, but here because I like the behavior.  It is a carry crab holding onto and upside down jelly fish and hiding under it as he scoots along the bottom.

Because he looks like a, well, orangutan.

But in keeping with the macro theme, he’s *way* smaller than his namesake.

I love the super straight fish “hiding” by the curvy whip coral.

If you’ve been following for a while, you know that I’m a big fan of texture. Sometimes I get so distracted by the texture and pattern that I don’t follow all those photography 101 rules. Like make sure there’s a subject. Yeah, ok, guilty. But still, I like it. Bubble anemone, I think.
