Common Scalyfin

This shot was taken this morning on a site called Coral Gardens, which is about 5 kilometres NW of Mindarie Marina in the northern suburbs of Perth. The depth here is between 18 and 25 metres and vizibility was about 15 metres. The Common Scalyfin, not a very pretty name, is abundant around here and they are usually very bold - coming close to make popping noises and to nip at your extremities.


  1. You know I think I might like to do a dive course! Would like to see some of this for myself....wonder if it has anything to do with the kidney?

  2. This is a fabulous shot, when you pull it in close it's even better.

  3. As he sails from a clear sky over the blooming garden. Beautiful shot. / Peter
