There’s nothing like the frustration when you get in the water with a wideangle lens and spot a rare, small subject like this ghost pipefish. I tried to get a shot:
It’s the yellow/brown thingy in the bottom-right (head down, tail up).
But I got over it. Because the reason we were at this site was…mantas!
While I’ve seen the occasional, manta-shaped shadow far, far away, this was my first up close and personal encounter. There were about 6-7 of them and they were magnificent.
