Very beautiful! Did you take these photos while in the water? If not, it looks like you might have used a polarizer? Are they edible?

Sorry, you don't have to answer all that...just some questions that came to mind!

@Jacob: I was not in the water, these were taken from above with one of my small Cybershot cameras. I think these fish are edible although I've never tried. And please feel free to ask whatever you like! :-)

Your fish shots are beautiful. The light, colour of the fish, knowing you were someplace where you could see the fish at play .

Beautiful shots in clear water. Interesting little fishes. MB

The water is so clear and the reflection so minimal, it looks as if the triggerfish are floating above the water rather than in it!

Oh, I love triggerfish (and, Jacob, not to eat!). They are always nibbling on something or cleaning off the moss, it seems.

Those are stunning shots, I especially like the first one! We don't get that kind of vivid colored fish up here. Did you use the flash, or was the sunlight enough? I have successfully taken flash photos into the water, without the flash I always seem to get a grey film covering it. Maybe our natural winter light is too week.
Again, awesome photos!
