Weekly Photo Challenge – Treat

Squirrel Treat

Squirrel Treat

Peter and I returned this past Saturday from a fantastic scuba trip to Grand Cayman and the outer Cayman islands. While in Grand Cayman, I did a private lesson with Addie Wee, an instructor at the Cathy Church Underwater Photography School. It was awesome! I was able to take my photography to a new level, so it’s no surprise that my treat is hanging out underwater and photographing the life there.

This shot is an extreme closeup of a squirrel fish. These guys are often very friendly and this one was particularly so. It was nipping at the fingers of the hand that I was using to steady myself to take its picture! I also thought this shot had a very Halloweeny feel. Happy Halloween, everyone!

    Very cool, C and Happy Halloween! I must admit I thought this was a closeup of a horse’s face at first, so the fact that it’s a fish makes it even more Halloween-y. ;).

    Great shot and hope you have lots of tricks and treats.

  8. This one is EPIC, Cathy! I love it. It has such an air of mystery and beauty. Love the close-up that leaves the viewer wondering what they’re looking at, and filling in the blanks. Glad you guys had such a great time!

    I’ve never heard of a squirrel fish, Cathy. That’s great you got to have that photography session and then to take a shot like this. How rewarding!
