Yuricle swiming underwater with Sergeant Major fish.
Taken with underwater camera then colors udjusted in photoshop. No other modifications applied.
This is not an image manipulation: the fish really was on it's place :)

It's almost incredible that the pic could be true, even if it does not seem mounted. Beautiful symbiosis. Good technique of underwater shoting. Great colour of the sea.

I love it Sonia. I know that these underwater shots are tough, this one is really great. I really like your framing and the sharpness is what makes this shot.

clear and sharp under water shot. No worries, we believe its a real fish at its position while taking this picture

The fish is a Sergeant Major. It is a member of the Damesilfish family. The behaviour it is doing is called "shadowing", this is the first time I see a damesilfish do this. Shadowing is done by predatious fish that hide behind a large plant eating or plankton eating fish to approach unsuspecting prey. So your friend is the plankton eating fish ;¬)
Great shot under difficult circumstances!
