Mysterious, colorful and exciting!

Beautiful Butterflyfish And Corals

The Exquisite Butterflyfish is always wonderful to see, as it is such a beautiful fish. They swim around the corealreef, but are quite shy, so you usually do not get very close to them. Here I had luck and saw them before they saw me 🙂

The Stonefish

Do you know what fish is the most venomous of them all? It is the Stonefish. This one is photographed from a distance with the zoom. Synanceia verrucosa is a fish species known as the reef stonefish (or simply stonefish). It is a carnivorous ray-finned fish with venomous spines.

The bluecheeked butterflyfish

One of my favorites… finally got this close to them. The Masked (Blue-Cheeked) Butterflyfish.  So gorgeous! Chaetodon semilarvatus is found in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, at depths of between 3 and 20 m.

Slingjaw Wrasse 2

When I saw this one, I laughed. It it my first capture of the Slingjaw Wrasse, which sure looks funny while eating 🙂 Epibulus insidiator is a species of wrasse native to the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea and the African coast to Hawaii.

Back in the Red Sea!

After 16 months it was fantastic to dive into the Red Sea again.

Below two photos of the Sailfin Tang. 🙂 The fish is one of my favorites.

Threadfin Butterflyfish is a bit shy. So it is not easy to get a good capture of it. This time I got one. 🙂

The Clownfish / Anemonefish is always a delight to the eye. This one was only 5 cm …so I used the camera’s macro zoom fully.

Our second home

Our second home is far away from Finland. It is a colorful and amazing home. A little wet, but that’s just nice 😉 Yes, you guessed right, I am talking about the Red Sea.

Beautiful RedSea_1

We share our second home with many. For example with the Exquisite Butterflyfish. Sometimes the Masked Pufferfish pays us a visit.

Most days we spend time with the Crown Butterflyfish, the Regal Angelfish and the Red Sea Sailfin.
