RAINBOW WRASSE A-FLICKERING



Wrasses are one of the most common types of fishes we can observe in the ocean.

I caught this school of hungry rainbow wrasse on a feeding frenzy.

The target of their appetite was the eggs of the Lemon Damselfish.

Where I live in Japan, we sometimes manage to fish the rainbow wrasse.

They taste really good, especially when steamed with preserved plums, ginger, garlic, and some rice wine.

This shot was taken overhead the place of action.

I was almost in a vertical pose, with fins above...

Luckily, not much current to deter me...

Size of these guys was about 30 centimeters...
