Even after a long break, it's never too late to rediscover SCUBA...

Congratulations to Stefan and Kati Zettler from Germany who together with Carlos Frederico Brandt from Brazil, proved the analogy that "learning to dive is like learning to ride a bicycle" ie. once you've learned how to do it, you never really forget.

Lagoon Damselfish (Hemiglyphidodon Plagiometopon)

This Lagoon Damselfish (Hemiglyphidodon Plagiometopon) was reasonably easy to get in frame as it was so busy attacking the camera at the time!!

Not content with viciously biting me on the thigh as i swam innocently by, it proceeded to head-butt, and even tail-butt the camera lens by backing into it repeatedly...
