Description

I think I promised no more Frog Fish Photos for a while a little time ago, the day has finally come though to post another. Here is a Painted Frog Fish in vibrant Yellow and Maroon, found him hiding on the opposite side of a reef ledge and in the twilight of the dive, he was quite well hidden. It’s extremely odd with underwater photography how your eyes will see a fish like this one as exactly the same color as his surroundings, but when you shine your light on them for a photo all their amazing colours jump out at you.

This is obviously something that super camouflage critters like Frog Fish rely on, bad eye sight of large predators. You can see why so many other species have developed ways of combating this disadvantage, like Sharks & Rays which hunt via many other methods, because no matter how good your eye sight is, Frog Fish are hard to spot!

This one was likely waiting for dark to do a little bit of night hunting, he seemed fairly agitated by me and the light, I probably confused the hell out him, one moment he would have been getting ready for a night out on the town, the next, OMG where did this new sun come from and why can’t I see anything. Sorry little buddy, you look great though!

Can you identify this juvenile Ghost Pipe Fish, because the internet couldn't and neither can I, but really in all seriousness this family of Sygnathiformes is so rare that it is extremely hard to document correctly, which is why I was so excited when I stumbled upon this little guy in the middle of [...]

They look so very stupid, but tha [...]
