Mating Mandarinfish!


Mandarinfish.  Mating Mandarinfish.  As dusk settles on the reef at Magic Pier in Buton Bay, the amazing mandarinfish emerge.  A brief courtship dance is followed by pairs - in this case a threesome - slowly ascending in the water column. Then, in a flash of mandarinfish-love, it's all over!Scuba Diving Magazine 2010 Photography Contest - 2nd place, Behavior category.
