UPY  Macro - Highly Commended
'Mr. & Mrs Yellow Hairy Goby' - Jeffrey Chua de Guzman

Yellow hairy gobies are one of the cutest fish in the sea, but they are tiny tiny tiny and often dart to and fro – left and right. Never staying still for more than a few seconds, They live in spiny corals to protect themselves from predators, like wrasses. This is a subject that demands exceptional patience, clicking the shutter at just the right moment. And sometimes that patience is rewarded with sheer luck. My goal was a simple portrait, when suddenly another goby popped its head into the frame.
