This curious little fella wanted a closeup look at my u/w digital macro setup.

You got a couple of beautiful shots Laz, and you didn't even have to spend a whole day in an airplane to get it.

No, but I did have to drive 80MPH for an hour in order to get to the dive shop on time because I awoke 30 minutes late. That's tough for someone who normally doesn't drive past 60MPH.

Thanks Herb! I appreciate the nice comment.

Any advice? Things you think I could have done better.

For me, driving 80MPH would be the fun part; another good reason to sleep in.

I think you've done a great job on this one and the wrasse blenny. I can't see anything that would improve the photos. Especially
on this coney. I've never managed to get so close to one. Maybe the ones in Florida are more friendly or the ones I've seen can tell that I love to eat sushi.

Keep up the good work.

80MPH, Jimmy Buffett music and a Florida Keys sunrise definitely don't go together.

I haven't seen too many Coneys, but the one's I have seen have been a little curious. When I saw this little fella, he noticed me at the same time and rushed right in front of my lens. Afterwards, he perched on piece of coral and my dive buddy, NanSea spent a while looking and playing the finger-worm game with him/her.

If you're ever down here, I know this one magical spot where the critters really get up close and personal. I was there last week and I took all these pictures without moving more than 5 ft.

Not the greatest of pictures but I think they help prove my statement.

ahh!... but then again, I don't eat sushi.

Maybe that's why. :)
