Artist's Description

Sawfish are much rarer in Great Barrier Reef waters than they used to be, mostly because they are highly vulnerable to capture in fishing nets. Not only this, but they also inhabit coastal, very murky waters so photography is almost impossible. This is a specimen kept in captivity for a short time for a documentary. I don’t normally post photos of captive animals, but this is such a rare, amazing and charismatic creature that I felt I had to share.

Canon EOS 5D; Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens; Ikelite housing; Ikelite DS125 strobes.
