In all its glory... what a lovely photo of colour and sharpness. There is also the amazing partnership between these two.. the anemone and the little Clown Fish.
The Ocean of Wilderness — Normally we think of marine wildlife and fisheries deep in ocean, far at sea. Or, on exotic tropical islands far on the other side of the world. Or extremely, as the refugees from industrial society confined to designated wildlife refuges and the state parks. Yet, how many people living in urban areas on sea coasts never experience wildlife and cannot even fish? Were the industrial society to cease dumping sewage and toxic waste into watershed on the sea coast, they could experience wildlife nature and, attract viable fisheries to their shore. Gary Conn
i had to look twice; at first glance it looks like the tiny fish and anemone are being gently cradled by a red-clad and ample bosom ! truly a beautiful and intimate look into this microcosmic world.
PERFECTION IN A PHOTOGRAPH!!!!! The colors are magnificent and what a wonderful symbiotic " give and take" partnership in nature. The small, pretty little fish peeking out completes the picture.
A symbiotic relationship. Complementary colours. The sea anemone has more going for it than merely looking like a velvet cushion.
The little fish looks very protected and secure snuggled between the contingent of little green 'men' assigned to its security detail.
Nature generously provided the photographer with the compositional cluster.
Who knew symbiotic relationships could be so beautiful? The colors are gorgeous, almost dream-like, and the fish adds a point of reality. Nice work, Mr. Doubliet.
Another beautiful underwater shot. Not a lot of color, but what is there is vibrant and more than enough to keep one focused on the picture. They are quite a pair,with that story of taking care of each other. Rather like 'you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours' only better. j.e.s
Foarte frumoasă fotografie. Nota 10 la tehnică (lumină, culoare etc.)... Dar e prea căutată, parcă aşezată cu mâna, te atinge doar la suprafaţă.
Doubilet — 'Anemone Fish' Photo of the Day. Color, photography and the sea. Doubilet always photographs underwater, and they're great pictures. These colors and the lighting are phenomenal. How does he produce unimaginable photography under the sea? Be very careful of the sea and water; every slightest change to water chemistry or temperature damages the habitat. Healthy marine life is evidence of a vital ecosystem. Gary Conn
@Jan Wiechowski Not really, go scuba diving!
