Fish Photos

I love Bobbie Sullivan’s attitude on Photosynthesis; read on:

I like to photograph the faces of creatures that live in the sea. All of these individuals [seen in the blog post] belong to the Wrasse (Labridae) family. Most wrasses seem to have attractive markings on their faces, which show up well in close-up images like these:

Thalassoma klunzingeri, from the Red Sea, about 15 cm (six inches) long.

I just love the attitude that fish are individuals you’d want to get up close and personal with, not because they’re scary or bottom-of-the-sea-dwelling creatures that have never seen the light of day, but just because they’re cute and individual and probably have an opinion about getting a camera shoved in their face (like “is that food?”) so why not share it? Go B.N. Sullivan!

More fishies!
