Dusky anemonefish
Location: Okinawa, Japan Dive Site: Maeda Point Marine Life ID: Dusky anemonefish Settings: Full auto, internal flash Description: We see these anemonefish all the time, but the colors of the anemone made this different.
Chevron barracuda
Location: Mergui Archipelago, Burma Dive Site: North Twin Plateau Marine Life ID: Chevron barracuda Settings: Full auto, internal flash Description: When we came across this school of thousands of barracuda, my buddy couldn't resist swimming through--and I couldn't resist this shot!
Goby

Mantis shrimp

Cuttlefish

Durbin dancing shrimp

Christmas tree worm
Location: Okinawa, Japan Dive Site: Junkyard Marine Life ID: Christmas tree worm Settings: Full auto, macro, internal flash Description: First dive with the new Olympus. It's so easy to get great shots with it!
