Sailfin Goby
Photographer: Rebecca Li
Location: Cebu, The Philippines
The disappearing sailfin goby. I found this goby perching on the edge of a slope while I was searching for strange creatures among the rubbles that made up the ocean floor of Cebu. I was able to sit the camera comfortably in front of the fish and spent the next 10 minutes playing with the aperture settings to make the goby's tail disappear.
