Default Aussie Encounter

Just got back from a bucket list trip to Australia. While diving at Great Barrier Reef my wife and I made a new friend. Humphead Maori Wrasse named Wanda. Wanda is a "he fish" that used to be a "she fish" according to our dive master. Bruce Jenner fish? Either way he acted like a puppy wanting to be petted. And a camera hog!

Thats awesome! On a side note, most of your groupers do the same thing and change from female to male when they get larger.

I thought it what the opposite, but I knew they swapped.

I've noticed there are a lot of aquatic species that do that.

Your photos are really outstanding. Hope you can post some more. The Great Barrier Reef is also on my diving bucket list and it, like Guadalupe Island, is on every list of worldwide top-ten dives.

Very clear photos. What kind of camera was used? While in Crystal River I looked at cameras in a dive shop but I haven't kept up with the market in years.
