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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā¬†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. ūüôā 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. ūüôā

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.

Plunge into the Red Sea!

We love to photograph in the Red Sea. Have a look at the most recent photos. You just might decide to plunge in yourself! ūüôā I can warmly recommend snorkeling, diving and photographing close to the coral reefs.

Fascinating Red Sea World

To go underwater in the Red Sea takes you to a whole new world, a beautiful and fascinating world.

You can see hundreds of Lyretail Anthias, Scalefin Anthias, and Half-And-Half Cromis.

Beautiful Red Sea World 6

Once I met a BigEye Emperor and was truly surprised by the size of this fish, which is rarely seen at Port Ghalib, Egypt.

Big Eye Emperor Monotaxis Grandoculis

It swam slowly past me and disappeared into the deep blue sea.

The Bluespine Unicornfish, a juvenile this time, is so cute and neat. The spines are barely seen as small blue dots.

Chevron Butterflyfish likes to swim together. Here are two of them, and seems like they are dancing the same choreography. They seem to like the Raspberry Coral.

Lyretail Anthiascan sometimes surprise the photographer with its glowing  oragne color. Do you see the yellow Sulfur Damselfish. It is on the right and is quite small.
