Honorable Mention Blackwater

Steven Kovacs

The Story: One of the more common but diverse larval fish species that can be encountered on blackwater dives around the world are flounders. I was fortunate to come across this exceptionally beautiful species that I hadn't seen before during a blackwater dive off Kona, Hawaii. Luckily it was cooperative enough to allow a portrait to be taken.

Equipment Used: Nikon D500 Camera, Nikon 60mm Macro Lens, Ikelite Housing, Dual Ikelite DS160 Strobes

Camera Settings: ISO 400, F22, 1/250 sec
