Taken a couple of weeks ago in Tobago. I visited the same place multiple days to get this type of photo. Most days the light is never perfect, from bad angle or too hash. Only one day it was overcast which helped diffused the light and I managed to get the best photos on the trip.

Nikon D750
300mm f2.8 w/ 1.4x TC

f/5.6 | ISO 1250 | 1/200s - no flash - monopod used.

The soft lighting really allows the beautiful iridescence to stand out. Very nice image, Ray.

A lovely image showing off the colours and iridescence of this little beauty, Ray!
