  1. Fantastic. That's a whole lot of natural warning signs hehe. Posted 10 days ago
    1. Yes, was happy to capture this.
      There were many divers surrounding it and I was waiting for my turn.
      Its a popular fish and usually found on the deeper side, this one was around 32 meters, which means we don't have much bottom time to spend with it, especially when there are many divers taking turns taking pictures!
