Amed, Bali, Indonesia
Juvenile Longhorn Cowfish, (Lactoria Cornuta) hovering over the sandy bottom. Don’t get fooled as this one is easily misidentified as a boxfish. This one is greener, the scales are bigger and easily seen, and dwells over sandy bottoms whereas boxfishes usually live on rocky bottoms, have smaller scales, which can not be seen one by one.
The trick here (apart from not scaring the fish and waiting for him to pose on a perfect front position) is having both strobes symmetrical which, underwater, is easier said than done. There is people who barely move the strobes throughout the whole dive. I move them almost for each shot I take.
