A common nudi on dive sites around Sydney, but don't often get them sitting and posing like this.  The pose with "pot belly" reminded me of Norm the couch potato from the Life be in It campaign ads in Australia in the 70s/80s.

Very cool, as usual. I wish, (but not enough to really do anything about it), that I knew more about underwater photography so I could offer something of value!
Question: Are your flashes “normal” visible light spectrum, or is there an extra UV component? The colors are always so vivid, like in a big, fancy aquarium.
Good light,

They are normal everyday flashes as far as light goes, generally around the 5000K mark, though mine have 4600K diffusers on them, i really don't do anything to the colour apart from colour balance as needed and boost contrast through curves.

What a character! So colorful- makes me very curious about these creatures. They seem to come in several color schemes? You must have so much fun with these. Wonderful title!
You've got me curious-I tried to get more info about these critters, but didn't find much!
