Solo Diving on the Big Coral Knoll
Still windy, but the seas calmed down some. I decided to shoot supermacro and loaded a +10 diopter on the 100 mm macro lens.
Got some nice shots of a Sailfin Blenny, but couldn't get him fully unfurled and had way too much backscatter in the picture.
Did better with a Neon Goby on some Great Star Coral. Problem here was holding the camera in the surge.
The picture of the Amphipod was only partly the lens and diopter. I also cropped the picture. A lot.
I took the diopter off for the second dive. It was just too hard to hold and focus the shot in the surge.
Got some shots of a litttle green turtle on the Big Coral Knoll and a Hawskbill came by about 20 minutes later.
Found a Goldentail Moray Eel amoung the coral and got some nice shots of a Yellow Fanworm, but could have used the diopter on those shots.
Got a nice close up of some Great Star Coral.
Also got a few shots of a Yellowtail Damselfish, but those shots are hardly closeups. Headed West, back to the beach.
