Good morning, I have the third and final Derilissus sp. (clingfish) for you all this morning that the Smithsonian Institution and Substation Curacao crew recently discovered off the tiny coast of St. Eustatius. For those of you wanting to learn more about these beautiful little fish here’s a little more information about clingfish in general.

When we saw this fish for the fist time it was so small/tiny that we couldn’t see how beautiful those eyes were. It wasn’t until I shot it with the 105 macro lens on f40 with two Ikelite sub strobes that the revelation of this little fish came to light and I remember almost loosing my mind and yelling for everyone to come over and look at this fish! Upon seeing some of my first shots I remember also having this large group of people now surrounding me wanting to see more close-ups, it’s truly a fish that everyone has fallen in love with!

Have a great day out there..
