[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While out in Phoenix we visited an aquarium where I took this photo of a Lion Fish. I found out that you had to position yourself at just the right angle while composing a shot, or you would get a flash reflection in your photo.

There are so many beautiful creatures that live in the oceans and fresh water lakes of our world, I wish we could have more opportunities to photograph them for all to enjoy viewing.

Be careful—the purists out there might remove this photo as domesticated. They did that to my Koi photos and never answered my requests to have them reinstated. But enough of that.

I think this is a wonderfully exotic photo. I never cease to be amazed by the different kinds of creatures in this world.

I am impressed that there is no hint of flash or glass glare or fingerprints. You must share your tips.

Hi Ron,

Great macro.
Made with exceptional contrast perfectly, congratulations.
Have a pleasant weekend,

Hi Ron,

I went through your picture gallery, and I must say that your sense of photography is just great!

On your today's shot, the sharpness is nice from a good POV with nice DOF. The colors of the fish are so natural and soothing to the eyes. It looks so tender! Nice details!

Thanks for sharing.

Hola Ron.
Lovely photo. Never seen this kind of Fish before. great sharpness and light. beautiful BG.
Saludos Ron.

I agree, mate!
This ain't an easy shot, and I hear there are some huge aquariums in China, Europe and in the US too, I think that should help us learn more!
An awesome shot, bro!

I didn't have the knack that you did here in clearing out the glass..I have tried and tried...You mean it is all in angle? Is there anything else...I love it! A superb in shot!

Hi Ron
