This is a PERFECT image of a Pterois volitans. I know them as Lionfish - in some of my Books - they are also called Turkeyfish.
The details in your photo are stunning! I saw several in the Maldives as as well as Malaysia - but never dared to go close enough to see all intricacies.
I know, their sting is extremely painful - and according to the Doctor who treated my husband after he had stepped on one barefooted - rarely and mostly only fatal due to a heart attack caused by the pain...
I think, you deserve BONUS POINTS for Courage!!
Did you have a battery of lights to achieve such brilliant colours? I also notice the healthy coral, which is very encouraging after the decline of the reefs I have seen in the Maldives AND Malaysia.
Your work is OUTSTANDING, and I have chosen it as a favorite.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday

Absoluteley fantastic - beautiful detail and great colour and composition.
The Canon G10's performance is quite exceptional, the clarity and exposure are fantastic for such a light weight camera. I'm guessing you had to get a waterproof case in order to take it underwater. Also I'm guessing at the availability of abundant light was due to being in semi shallow water. Any way, well done on this beautiful capture Tom. :)

Do you know that they recently reached to Mediterranean Sea and start to invade. However a lovely fish species when you see it in right places :)
