Feasting on rainbows

Feasting on rainbows - © Christopher Martin-2276

This Manini (Acanthurus triostegus) was one of many swimming in the sheltered cove at the Lydgate Beach Park when I was snorkelling there yesterday.  The fish has a great nickname, the Convict Tang, owing to the stripes resembling those of a prisoner’s uniform of old.  When this one moved into an area of the rocks and coral where rainbows were shimmering, I swung my camera that way.

A good friend loaned me a waterproof casing for one of my cameras and it has been fun to play around with during time on the water.  It’s a different game shooting underwater and I am really having fun learning a bit of the how tos required to get a good image.  A very (very) long ways to go to approach the likes of Brian Skerry though!
