Stay in Hiding

This one is a brain twister. When I first saw it, even though I knew what I was looking for, it took a moment to pick out the face of the frogfish - kind of like those pictures where you have to look at the negative space to see the image.

Frogfish are ambush hunters. This particular chap does his lurking while drifting amidst seaweed. I wish more ugly creatures would camouflage themselves and stay in hiding. The world would be a prettier place.

Thanks for the photo, Erik.
