Shooting macro can be very difficult - you have to get within 1-2 inches of fish who are darting about, the sea surge moves you against your will, the shooting scene is reduced to just a couple square inches, depth of field (focus) is only about 1/4 inch deep.    It can also be the most rewarding - imagine seeing the beautiful blue eyes of a 3-inch red hermit crab, or a 1-inch transparent shrimp with purple feet (and laden with hundreds of eggs).  Without macro, these things would be impossible to see, and impossible to photograph.   Here are some of my favorites from the lilliputian world of underwater macro...
