122. Mauritian Clownfish (Amphiprion chrysogaster) and Striped Large-Eye Breams

Subject: Several Mauritian clownfish call this patch of Magnificent Anemone (Heteractis magnifica) their home. While they scout the environment diving in and out the anemone’s tentacles a small shoal of Striped Large-Eye Breams (Gnathodentex aureolineatus) passes by. The Mauritian Clownfish (Amphiprion chrysogaster) is endemic to Mauritius and Reunion.

Technique: I just posed my camera in front of the anemones and started to film. Having noticed the shoal of breams in its vicinity the waiting game paid off. Attracted by the video lights, the curious breams added some extra value to the scene. A little noise correction in post-production plus a tune of playful music and the clip came out better than anticipated.
