Triggerfish by Rod Johnson


A triggerfish at Carla Santa Galdana on the south coast of Menorca, Spain. It was about the size of a large dinner plate in height and about half as much again in length. I was at a depth of 2m when it first grabbed my camera housing. Each time it made a grab for my camera, I used my free hand to grabbed hold of it, at the base of its tail. It was very powerful and pulled me around in circles. The encounter lasted for about 10 minutes in total. This was the parting shot as I managed to back away from it.
