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 ­čÖé

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. ┬áSo gorgeous!┬áChaetodon 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 ­čÖé┬áEpibulus insidiator┬áis a species of wrasse native to the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea and the African coast to┬áHawaii.

Red Sea is full of beauty

We love to dive into the Red Sea. It is full of beautiful fish and corals.

To watch the colorful corals and the deep blue sea takes your breath away. The view is fascinating.

Beautiful Red Sea World

It is wonderful to go under the corals into a world you did not know exists:

I can warmly recommend to visit Egypt, for example Port Ghalib, where the beaches and the sea life is amazing and wonderful.
