  1. What a scene! Stunning composition. Posted one year ago
    1. Thanks, Ferdy.
      Had to wait for the right moment as when approached, the Damselfish will swim away and I have to wait for it to come back and get used to me being near :D

  2. Any idea how that whole in the coral was formed? Posted one year ago
    1. I explained it in my following observation :

      Guarding Eggs This Golden Damselfish - Amblyglyphidodon aureus is seen guarding her eggs which she has laid on the main branch of the Seafan corals.<br />
<br />
This is a different Damselfish from the previous post and both are seen around a hole/patch in a big seafan.  Am wondering if the Damselfish 'made' the hole by plucking away the seafan to expose the bigger branch for them to deposit their eggs.

      1. Sorry, I didn't see it. I was wondering if the fish had done it too. Posted one year ago
        1. No worries, WildFlower.
          Thought I explained the 'hole' in the other post as on that one, there are eggs on the coral branch.
          Whereas on this observation, there are no eggs but I wanted to get the composition with the blue background, which I was not able to with the other one.
