Tanks again Raphael.
I seem to be commenting on nearly every image, they are just amazing. I am extremely envious, of both the photographic skill (and images produced by that) and of the experience of seeing these things in such beautiful locations.
Thank you Chris. I enjoy your commends very much. But feel free to do the same job :-)))Best fishes, Norbert
A wonderful creature, and stunning shot.
I remember coming accross these in Penang, quite close to the beach on a little mini reef. It watched one of them bowing and charging towards a childs pair of legs. I just managed to lift the child out of the water. This was only a juvenile, but they appear to have a bit of an aggresive streak in them..
Thank you very much. Yes you have to take really care of them.Best fishes, Norbert
I see these things on TV documentaries, but to see the still, and have the chance to study it, that’s special!
Wonderful capture Norbert! I love the different tones and patterns of the coral against the stripes of the Lionfish. Absolutely beautiful!
