Cant see the picture? I think it was removed?  ???
Anyway, isnt it stressful for puffer to puff and this can even be fatal to the fish? IMO, taking photo is one thing but poking and animal causing stress or death is not acceptable.

Whether poking or flashing at the marine animals, we are disturbing them, isn't it? 

So what if a non photographer come up to us (and I say us, me included) and say it's disgusting that we use stroble and asks if we are ok with others flashing their light at us?

What if a non photographer says it's disgusting that we are stressing the critter by pushing the macro port/lens which look like the BIG mouth of a predator up close to the little critter?

Get my drift?  Everyone has a very different yardstick so don't be too quick to pass judgment.  If we feel strongly about it, approach the person nicely instead of confrontational.

PS - I do not know the person involved.

Apparently someone questioned the guy on facebook and he said something to the effect that he knows it's cruel but the puffer is very cute and that the next time he'll just shake the puffer to puff it up instead of poking. hrm....  ???

i've seen them puff up on their own before as well. maybe some are more skittish than others and puff up as a defensive posture by nature. but yea i think the point is that the diver is unrepentent or finds nothing wrong with the action.
