DANCING COLOURS SL043078

When I reflect on decades of photographing Australia's wonderful sea fishes, my imagination goes to the dancing colours of coral reefs, especially the vividly coloured basslets of the Serranidea family. This beautiful male Threadfin Basslet is a common sight for scuba divers on the Great Barrier Reef. They are usually seen in large schools clouding above large sea fans and coral protrusions along the reef's edges, feeding on passing plankton.
