"Prey Stalking" part of my Underwater Surrealism series. Image is playing off the name of the animal (frogfish) with the flies buzzing overhead and how both the Venus Fly Trap and the Frogfish wait patiently for their prey

Carousel of Clowns. Dragging the shutter at 1/15th second during a spin blurs the natural light. The flash freezes the action up close,. the middle ground ghosts with some motion blur.

8mm no crop. Flathead Crocodilefish color up when they lay on plants and corals, on sand and rock they go to white and black. Finding one perched up high was a lucky treat. 5D Mark2 in Ikelite housing
