A fine and unusual capture Jitti!
The dorsal view features of this Giant Mud-skipper are well seen with top sharpness and natural colours in a perfect composition. The bulging eyes are great to see and the bubbles by it make a nice extra.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Jitti,
What a unique looking fish which from reading your notes, seems to have some very unusual abilities. Excellent detail and beautiful natural coloration. The head has a very interesting shape to it, almost a flared out look. Nicely composed with just the right exposure. Great work!!

Hallo Jitti,
a very good capture, impressive details and very beautiful colours, excellent top point of view and very nice composition
Best regards
