The story: A skittish (red eye or mask?) goby swimming was swimming around this sponge. Several attempt to capture him in an appealing position by following him did not result in any thing. I opted to find the angle of the sponge that I like with the branches as the backdrop and than wait. I wanted both eyes and its fuselage splitting the sponge truck in half, give this effect that it was surfing. “Patience”, more patience, finally he start moving closer to where I want it to be…as the computer approaches NDL and air is running low, finally collaboration arrived and this capture resulted.
