Scorpionfish Face - Joel Simon
I took this photo this morning. It's confusing enough that some initial views might consider it an abstract, but it's a close up photo of a fish face - very honest. The fish looks just like this. The fish is very still and will let you get close as long as you are gentle. I lay on my belly on the sandy bottom basically just face to face with this very still fish .... to the point where I could see it's gills barely moving in a slow breathing rhythm. I did my best to match it's breathing pattern, and then we lay together for at least five minutes while I imagined being this fish. Perhaps I'll grow my beard as a result.
