Dawn found this beautiful juvenile Pinnate Batfish at the Drop-Off in Tulamben yesterday. It was approximately the size you are seeing here.... around 60mm long.
This was a very photo friendly fish and the first of this size we have seen around Tulamben.
The Drop-Off seems to have lots of juveniles and many fish welcoming us back to Tulamben this year.
Check out the Video below also. Both the video and Photo were taken with the same camera, an Olympus E-PL2 in an Olympus PT-EP03 housing with an Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm F2.8 macro lens.
One our new LED Focus Lights was used to light the video. While a single Z220 Inon strobe lit the photo.
