TRUMPET FISH IN YELLOW



Photographing ‘fish in flight’ is tricky business.
Patience, anticipation, and luck, plus loads of battery power and storage space are needed.
You shoot and shoot... if you are lucky you may get one satisfactory shot...
This shot could be better if not for the missing mouth...

Trumpet fish is often brown or green, and occasionally yellow.
They can change colors quickly and grow up to about one meter.
Trumpet fish prey on small fishes, plunging down vertically from above to suck the prey with its long snout.
