Description

I’ll put money on you never having seen a Devil Scorpion fish quite like this one, I’ve seen hundreds, possibly thousands of Devil Scorpion fish, Devil scorpion fish are bottom dwelling non moving ambush predators so camouflage is extremely important to them, they, especially Devil’s will lay still for probably days collecting algae, sand, sticks and other random bits of sea life, this helps them appear just like the rocks or shells that they like to hide in.

Many times though if you keep a keen eye peeled, you can find them hanging around off the reef, on the sandy area’s, usually they’ll make a small divet in the sand in which to lye, then they just sit and wait for food to come along. In this case I wasn’t food, in fact I didn’t even see it, my customer poked me and pointed at it while I was taking photo’s of a Stingray, I’d positioned myself on the sand, then this little guy started to hop, which is how they move much of the time, toward me.

By the time my customer had poked me and I turned to see what she was doing I saw this little Devil was quite close to me, I don’t know why he was moving in my direction, usually they don’t behave that way, but I figured I’d get a photo. It wasn’t until I opened it up on the computer at home I realised just how awesomely devlish this little guy truly was, he even has the horns, his vibrant reds are amazing and I’m just generally impressed at how much sand, algae, sticks and other things he managed to accumulated on him.

I feel like he has a lot of personality in this photo, big old grumpy looking face, telling me to get off his patch of sand, very awesome.

If you have never seen a Halloween Hermit Crab before don't be too surprised, I've only ever seen them very far up into Myanmar, they definitely don't seem to be in Phuket waters or elsewhere I've traveled, but it wouldn't surprise me to find out they are a dime a dozen somewhere else in the world.

Striped Eel Catfish Bait Ball

Striped Eel Catfish are somewhat of an oddity as most people associate Catfish with freshwater and big old ugly looking things. This photo depicts a small bait ball of extremely tiny ocean faring Catfish, no more than 2 - 3 cm each these little guys were picking their way across the black volcanic s [...]

Disco Lion Fish

I think many photographers, due to their being common, disregard Lion fish as subjects for their photo's, after spending four months diving in the Caribbean where Lion fish abound in un-maintainable numbers, you do get sick and tired of seeing them. Currently or at least when I took this photo I was [...]
