Lionfish

IMG_7741

Lionfish are supposed to be predators and eat all the little fish on the reef. I have yet to see a lionfish attack. Instead they avoid me. They are always pointing into the coral and they swim away if I get close. They are an invasive species in the Caribbean. But her in Red Sea they seem not to be affecting the fish population. Oh, the reason I posted this image is that with strobe the coral is more colorful as well as the lionfish. I like the color graphic of the image. These fish are also popular in aquarium displays. I just stay far away. They are said to be very poisonous.
