Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, March 3, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

I’ve always had great fun photographing the various anemonefish in the Solomons. I have seen Clowns (Percula), Pinks, Clarks, Orangefins, Red and Blacks, White Bonnets, Pandas, Oranges and Spinecheeks there (using imprecise common names). Among my favorites are the spinecheeks. Spinecheeks usually dwell in bubble tip anemones, also a favorite. Normally there is a pair, with a larger female and a smaller male, and there may be some juveniles present as well. This photo is of a male spinecheek in a bubble tip anemone. If you look closely, you can see the tiny spines coming out from his cheeks, one on each side.
