Hi Folks,

just wanted to share a couple of shots I took back in January when the water was warm and the fish were randy.

Both taken under the pier at Blairgowrie Marina, Port Phillip Bay, Australia on the same memorable dive.






For Your Eyes Only.

First time capturing Seahorses transferring eggs! Did have to do a lot of exposure adjustment and backscatter removal on this
as it happened quickly plus because I was slow to act my settings and strobe position were still in close focus macro mode.






Spawning Dragonets.

Seen this frequently but still haven't got a good image of the moment of the egg/sperm release. Maybe next Spring!




Cheers,
Jim.
