While diving Oil Slick Leap, David came across what he thought were 2 post larval juvenile Smooth Trunkfish. As I started shooting, I found there were actually a total of four juvenile Trunkfish which is a rare find indeed (at least for us). These fish are so small (about the size of a small pea) and they can swim pretty quickly – so they are a challenge to shoot, but I was able to capture a few good images. This isn’t one of my best images technically or artistically, but it is pretty rare encounter for me which is why it was chosen as this week’s Photo of the Week.
Equipment and settings: Nikon D850 / 60mm / INON z330 strobes / f14/ 1/160th / ISO 125.
