20. Decoy Scorpionfish (Iracundus signifier) (frontal view)


The Decoy Scorpionfish (Iracundus signifier) is quite small compared to most Scorpionfish. His excellent camouflage, while designed to ambush prey, also aids to hide from bigger predators.


To make the Scorpionfish stand out in this image, the surroundings were slightly blurred by a Gaussian blur effect in post-production.

Filming location:

This short underwater videoclip has been filmed in Mauritius 🇲🇺
