Food for the Fishes

What is this idiot photographer doing wrong? No, I'm not talking about angle of flash or f-stop.

He is kneeling on the reef. Coral is fragile and easily broken, but takes a long time to grow back. So don't use the coral to brace yourself.

Also, he is feeding the fish. Definitely a no-no. Besides upsetting the ecosystem, it teaches the fish that where there are people, there is food. Fish bites were becoming common at popular snorkeling spots until tours stopped offering fish food.

I only hope that he didn't become food for the fishes as well. Just after I left, I saw this shark heading his way to check out the commotion...
