Clown Frogfish, Lembeh Strait by 

This little guy is the coolest fish I’ve ever seen: the clown frogfish (Antennarius maculatus). Taken at ’Angel’s Window’, Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

Canon G10, with on-camera flash used on minimum output to fire two external Nikonos strobes.

    wow, cool image, great subject!

  • thanks baz :) I’ll find out some day what that crazy colouring is all about (since the whole point of frogfish is generally that they’re camouflaged!)

    You know what though, Dieter? The photographic quality is at least on par with the subject here…the exposure is perfect, retaining the tonality in a nearly all-white subject, which isn’t easy. Don’t sell yourself short, my friend, this is fine, fine work.

  • thanks heaps Tula :) I’ve decided not to be so hard on myself in the description and will leave it to the viewer to decide!

    … lucky for RAW files though, eh?

    Wow what an unusual looking creature! Great shot, Dieter! The exposure is spot on, and I love how his flowing form is echoed in the textures of the coral. Great work!

  • a very belated thanks, Damienne, have been busy, busy lately but good to be back :)
