A hunting frogfish is always a nice encounter. The fleshy lure of the hairy frogfish makes it very recognizable. To get the lure as big as possible this shot was made with an Inon Macro Wide angle lens. Focus distance 0 cm.

It was one of the most demanding efforts to shoot this shot with the Inon Macro Wide angle of a Sargassum frogfish floating around in between some weed just below the surface.
