Honorable Mention Macro

Greg Sherman

"Backlit Blenny"



Greg Sherman won a bottle of Li Lé Blue Watersports Hair Care for Divers! 


The Story: 

I came across this Gulf Signal Blenny (Emblemaria hypacanthus) displaying frequently on a dive in the Sea of Cortez. After approaching slowly I positioned my snoot so as to backlight the fish when its dorsal fin was fully unfurled. After just 3 attempts I was rewarded with this image.
