Blue cod Parapercis colias is usually a friendly and inquisitive fish. Sometimes it’s even more. This one was following me for a significant part of the dive though I didn’t know about it. Accidentally I turned back and the glass port of my camera housing almost touched the fish. I pressed the shutter and this shot came into being.
