Knows His Place

This fish knows his place in life: under the sand and out of sight. Once again, I'm reminded of some people who I wish would have the same wisdom.

Are you sure that's not Wilson (from Cast Away)?

You have succeeded in the "donkey-head-in-car-screaming-person" goal with this picture ('cept I'm not a boy.)

This is incredible and actually beautiful in a mosaic kind of way.

But is there any way to find out what kind of fish this is? Anybody have a clue? Any guesses??? Tell meeeeeee......

Rasmus said...

My guess would be some sort of angler (Lophius). The genus has some 50 members. Any idea where this was taken?

Jade said...

That can't be a real fish. Wow! I'm impressed! :)

It looks like a mosaic; or a stained-glass window from hell.

Alas, I know not from what waters this creature hails. I just hope its know where near the California coast.

"stained-glass window from hell"

That made me laugh out loud at work. :)

Nice picture, Wombat.

He's just like a crazy cartoon. Must be a drag looking like when you're trying to act sophisticated, or applying for a job.

He seemed so unhappy. I couldn't resist cheering him up, via a 15-second photoshop:

Wow, Jack. That is seamless!

Jack Ruttan said...

It takes a lot of blending and layers to get it exactly right. ;)

pkeli said...

HAA!! Excellent smile, Jack! Still might not be enough to land a job...

Kritter said...

Jack, that's hilarious! If anything, your version is even a little creepier--imagine that thing looming out of the sediment as you enjoy a dive.
