Favorite of the Day, December 16, 2006    [ Photography,Travel ]

Rhinopias scorpionfish are some of the most beautiful fish in the ocean. They come in all kinds of colors and patterns. I’ve been lucky enough to see several, and each one was lovely. This Rhinopias was only the second one I’d ever seen, and it was very unexpectedly seen on our Thailand trip.

I’m about to head out to dive for a bit, so I’ll pick back up on favorites of the day in January. Have a very merry holiday season!

In 2001 I made my first trip to Papua New Guinea and got to see many cool critters and behaviors. I like the Risbecia tryoni nudibranchs and had seen them in the Solomons, but in PNG, I saw one with an emperor shrimp on it for the first time. This shrimp seems almost too large for the nudibranch!

The Halgerda stricklandii nudibranchs in today’s favorite are indigenous to Thailand, and named after the ex Ocean Rover photo pro, Mark Strickland. They are a striking nudi.
