It’s Friday, so here’s another funny fish face.
This is a Guineafowl Puffer (Arothron meleagris), shot (with the camera) at Cocos Island, in Costa Rica. I captured this image on the infamous Manuelita shark rodeo night dive – you know, the one with dozens of marauding white tip reef sharks. No wonder this little puffer looks alarmed – with all the sharks swarming, hunting for tasty tidbits, his chances were not so good.
Capturing good images of the sharks was tough – I found that in the dark, my camera was not so keen to focus. Still, being there was a total thrill. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
