Heather Mellon

He makes an interesting subject and I like how you captured the colours and detail on both the fish and water so well. Very nicely done, Yves.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Heather. He look big but this is a small fish (8 inches). To the naked eye bright colours are barely visible ( he blends perfectly with the ground under to avoid being catch by raptors.

Clifford Dupuis

very nice as usual, and what an interesting subject...well done Yves

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. It is pretty much my way of photography.

Debra Plett

Beautiful colour and intersting capture Yves. Couldn’t have been easy with the reflections.

Yves Langlois

Thanks Debra. Of course a stand still water is a must, no reflection on the water too and not more than 2 inches of water over the fich.

Jane LeBlanc

Very cool pattern on the fish, and thanks for saying how the shot was made.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Jane

The capture is not done with an underwater camera. The fish swims in very shallow water near the shore. I am using my usual 400mm. A bit of light correction on the PC makes the trick.
