Here is my entry. Paracheilinus octotaenia
EightlineFlasher2019061603POTMContest.jpg


Technical information:
I use a Olympus E-M5II with 12-40mm F1:2.8 PRO lens. It is a 4/3 CMOS sensor so the lens focal equivalent of 24-80 mm. I did not record aperture or speed of the shutter.

My fish pictures are often high speed pictures taken later in the day as the light dim down. That is when all my fishes are doing their hanky-panky.
I set the ISO high enough, about 5000 or so, to have enough room to get the shutter speed up to 1/250 or shorter, larger A to keep the dept field not too deep. High speed bust and pan the camera in the direction of the speed moving fish.
