Another cool fish I saw in the Underwater world… It was hard trying to wrap my head around the vast number of species they had there.

This one’s literally called the Devil, if you say firefish really softly. ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s found in the Indo-Pacific regions and love the corals. Well, if I was diving in some corals and one of these moved, I’ll freeze out of fear. Anyone who says they won’t either don’t know this fish is venomous or is lying (probably lying). >:)

Even the scientific name comes from soldier (in Latin): Pterois Miles.

In other news, I’m using a Mac at work nowadays. And I’m having trouble at home using my normal laptop. I wish they positioned the damn Command button like a normal person (or just let it be Ctrl+C for copy)… ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. So aptly named, Sudipto, and a fabulous capture of it. I wonder if I'd ever get used to a Mac after all these years on a PC??? I guess there's a steep learning curve but many say that photographers prefer a Mac. Hmmmm.

    1. Well, for photography, Mac is definitely the best choice… They have the colors right… Us Windows and Linux people need to calibrate our monitors from time to time if we need to get the colors just right… Although, to be fair, modern monitors don't degrade as fast as they used to… So I think we're good now… ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. C'est un poisson qui n'est pas comme les autres
    Ce sont des lentilles d'eau qui prolifรจrent ร  la surface d'eau stagnante

  3. Venomous or not, I wouldn't go near it!! Both beautiful and very scary looking.
    This is a great shot of it though.
    I've used Macs for years, and just recently was using my son's PC. Oh my goodness, so confusing to me, but you can get so much more (space, RAM, speed, etc.) in a PC than in a Mac, for a lot less $$.
