Buying an underwater case for my digital camera was an excellent decision. This shot was taken at Pickford Reef in the Whitsunday Islands.

  1. Great snap! The first time I came across a school of these voracious fish I was struck by the noise they produced munching on the hard coral. This one is ready to pounce.

  2. The noise is really audible pretty much everywhere in the Whitsundays. I’ve got some videos which have picked it up.
