It was the capture that mattered ~ just drifting over a reef whilst being pushed along by the current ~ there was no time to stop or need to change effort ~ just to take the shot.

What took my eye ~ was the bright orange sponge associated with this anemone ~ I just managed to time the passing just nicely by framing the anemone-fish…

If you look really carefully there is another ‘little face’ looking up at you from within the tentacles… Can you spot the other little ‘Nemo’ ???
