Ghost pipefish with a fresh meal

Canon G11   F8, 1/400th, ISO 100

I was zoomed at least halfway using a SubSee +5 (I have a dual gate SubSee but I'm sure the +5 was in place). It was shot in Lembeh Strait, Indonesia. I got a series of 4 shots on this pipefish, this was the only one showing the catch (the 1st shot he hadn't gotten his meal yet, the others were "too late"!). You can guess, given the shutter delays in point and shoot cameras, it was fortunate I got the peak action but part of that was having the shutter release half-way down, being prepared in case!
