Bumphead Parrot Fish - Highly Commended

Bump Head Parrot Fish ( Bolbometopan muricatum)
I really wanted to see these fish while I was out there, and like most photographers I wanted them all to myself. I think it's wise to visual what you want. We got in the water around 06:00 and that's what we got. I was really pleased to get this close to large group and with the dappled light in the background as well. I spent more than an hour with the group and took over 100 pictures, this is my favourite. This shot was shot was highly commended by a group of judges in the recent DIVER / BSOUP print competition. These fish are large, around a 1 meter in length and between 40-60 kgs.
