These shots represent the underwater life of Indonesia and Malaysia through Micronesia and on to Fiji. These waters are generally warm and clear and possess arguably the most colorful sea life found on the planet. Some of the exotic species found here practically defy the imagination. It really makes you wonder at the creative force that led to the bizarre adaptation of some of these creatures.

I guess the easiest way to describe Macro is that it is photography of really tiny critters and fish. I like it because it takes you right down into their world. Most of these images are taken with a 60 mm and a 105 mm lens on a housed Nikon camera. A few of the older ones are taken with extension tubes and framers on a Nikonos 5 and on some I used a special macro lens that fits over the top of a 35 mm lens on the Nikonos 5. Some of the extreme close-ups are taken with a 2:1 diopter that attaches over the port for the 105 mm lens. Shooting this can be a challenge because if there is the slightest bit of surge or current or your subject is moving around a lot, you’re pretty much toast. It can be really tough keeping your subject in the viewfinder. It’s kind of like trying to catch a housefly with chopsticks.
