There's something fishy about these posts!

And thus begins a couple of weeks of Fish Faces. Most of these pictures were taken with a 5mp Pentax Optio in a small underwater housing.

First up ~ Cabezon!  Down right cranky at times, they will attack if approach too closely.

In the beginning I took mostly pictures of fish tails. Blurry out of focus fish tails as they swam away.  

But after a while I starting getting more and more mug shots where they would let me stick the camera right into their face. In the case of cabezon and wolf eels I've wondered more than once if they would suddenly snatch the camera out of my hand and eat it. Cabezon because they are cranky and wolf eels because we hand feed them crabs and urchins.

In the coming weeks I will be posting some of the fish mug shots that I have on my digital picture frame. I hope that you will enjoy them as much as we do.

Speaking of digital picture frames: ours died after continual use for three years so we replaced it with a small Vizo TV from Costco that has a USB input. It looks so much better and was actually cheaper than our original digital picture frame!
