Underwater Photography 62/365 Rainbow Wrasse Portrait

“Rainbow Wrasse Portrait” Project Picture 62/365

Nikon D90   Nikkor 60 mm   1/125   f/32.0   ISO 100

While diving the other day in Calpe I found this Rainbow Wrasse “Coris Julis” almost when I was about to ascend, I have tried to find a good angle to capture it several times, as their pictures are normally with the fins down and a very straight posture.

You will find them swimming around sea grass or near a rock,this one was quite playful and approached my camera port several times,so it was a good opportunity to get something interesting,I noticed that when feeding they make very funny circular movements similar to the ones a dog does when you are going to take them out for a walk, so after a couple of shots I managed to captured it

Mientras buceaba el otro día en Calpe, me encontré con esta Doncella “Coris Julis” casi cuando estaba a punto de ascender, he intentado encontrar un buen ángulo para fotografiarlos varias veces, ya que las imagenes que he visto de ellos normalmente suelen ser con las aletas sin desplegar y con el cuerpo completamente recto.

Normalmente te los encuentras nadando alrededor de jardines de posidonia o cerca de una roca, este era muy juguetón y se acercó a mi cámara varias veces, así que era una buena oportunidad para sacar un ángulo interesante, he descubierto que cuando se alimentan hacen movimientos circulares muy divertidos similares a los que hace un perro cuando los vas a sacar de paseo, así que después de un par de tomas logré capturarlo.
