The Micro Fish World

I just couldn't figure a way to photograph these tiny 2 inch Sticklebacks. And getting close to them was also difficult. Furthermore, they seemed terrified of their own reflection (yet didn't mind the Pike that lived in the weeds). In the end, I held out the camera, facing skyward and I stayed motionless for 10 minutes. Soon they gathered around and I managed to get the shot.
