WAKATOBI, DEC 2003 - FROGFISH (ANGLERFISH)

Frogfish (Anglerfish)

There was one beautiful, stocky clown frogfish in the 2nd Gully that migrated around from the sandy area near the anchor to the edge of the drop-off. He was really fat and cute.

Henry found a nearly-black, painted frogfish at Blade (and thus, the frogfish was named, "Henry III," since Henry is already a Junior), and the other group found a "blue" frogfish at Pockets, which we discovered was actually pink when photographers came back up from the dive.

Blue, pink...

I can see how one could be easily confused for the other.

I went 10 minutes into deco to get the pink frogfish shots. I think he wasn't too happy by the time I got to him. Chris Humphreys and I were last in a line of photographers photographing him. He started ... burping violently, or doing something that resembled violent burping.
