Fiji, Gau Island, Pink skunk clownfish or pink anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion)

I photographed this pink anemonefish during my recent scuba diving expedition to Fiji. I love photographing clown anemonefish. They have a lot of character as they swim about in the tentacles of their host anemone. I like how it is looking right at my camera with an comical expression of indignation. I took hundreds of photos during this dive trying to get the fish to look directly at me as the anemone's tentacles all were going the same direction in the current. I created this image using my Canon 5DmkIII and my 100mm f2.8 macro lens inside my Ikelite 5DmkIII housing with a macro port and dual DS160 strobes. I processed the RAW file using Aperture 3 and Photoshop CS6, plus Nik Software’s Color Efex 4‘s white balance filter.
