This colorful Regal Angelfish, Pygoplites diacanthus, was swimming quickly but steadily, allowing me to compose this shot as I panned along. In this case I kept the zoom at the 70mm length to minimize distance between lens and subject. Similan Islands Marine National Park, Thailand, Andaman Sea. Nikon F100 in Seacam housing, twin Ikelite 200 strobes, Ultra Light arms, Fujichrome Velvia 50 film. f-8, 1/125 sec.
