[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Clownfish (Amphiprion percula)is approximately 6 cm long with a weight of only few grams. It has a typical body shape with a vivid orange-white-black coloration. It's distributed in western and eastern part of the Pacific Ocean. The spawns can be found on clear corals or rocks.
Amphiprion percula has got a very useful and worth symbiosis with the sea anemone. In case of emergency or an attack the clownfish hide inside the sea anemone, which protects them. On the other hand the sea anemone has also got a benefit from the clownfish as they eat food debris located on the anemone’s surface.

Hello Maciej,
Great capture of this Clownfish! nice colours.
Greetings.
Ferran

Witaj Maciej
Bardzo ładne podwodne zdjęcie. Nie jest łatwo takie zdjęcie zrobić, zwłaszcza gdy woda nie jest zupełnie przejrzysta. Zresztą trochę "śmieci" na zdjęciu wyszło, ale nie przeszkadzają w odbiorze. Poza tym ładne kolory i dobra ostrość.
Dobry początek, pozdrawiam
Ania
