The colours of the Indian Doublebar Goatfish

Subject: From pale white to deep purple, the colours of the Indian Doublebar Goatfish (Parupeneus trifasciatus) can change within seconds. These colour alterations seem to be related to the goatfish’s activity of the moment; for instance: they turn pale when resting on the sand.

Technique: It’s always a good idea to integrate close-ups in the final product. It shifts the attention of the subject to the beauty of its details.
