The Lumpsucker saw it's own mirror image in the domeport and was dancing in front of me. I was able to shoot several nice shots, but this is my favorit. If you want to see the rest of the shots visit my website. .

Dear Jornari,
I consider the portrait itself excellent, knowing how difficult circumstances in terms of condition in place might be.
I've tried various way in order to expose the motive itself from (disturbing) environment around, but it never ends satifactory.

Keep on with your good job (-;

P.s.: One pic I've done in the dutch northsea some time ago: ... y/13621091
