the sardine run #23

Sometimes in pelagic photography which I seem to like most it is very difficult to find colorful moments - sharks and dolphins are pretty much monochromatic, unlike many macro critters you are already familiar with ;) I was pretty much consent with that idea before I finally met sailfish in my last few minutes of diving on the very last day of our Sardine Run expedition. Colorful qualities coming with the power and spirit of big hunter - bio-chemical processes in the body of this really cool predator are as exciting as color changes you can observe with octopuses and cuttlefish.
