    Whiteband Damsel, Plectroglyphidodon leucozonus in the Red Sea. In a small cave, there was this wonderful 10 cm damselfish, among the fantastic corals and seagrass. It is a little bit of an aggressive fish, protecting its territory. This you can see in this photo, where the fish comes right at me. Look closely and you can see the teeth. It did bite me. If you thought macro photography is tough on land... try it underwater! :)

    This underwater view looks like a painting! The colors blend together like an impressionist's brush strokes. Great work getting sharpness in the fish's eyes.
