148. Peacock Sole (Pardachirus pavoninus)


Subject: The Peacock Sole (Pardachirus pavoninus) is a dweller. Its flat and beige coloured body make it perfectly adapted to live on sandy bottoms. When born these fish have their eyes on both sides of their body but after a while the left eye migrates to the right side of their head.

Technique: This shot has been captured with a diopter (close-up lens). These lenses make it possible to reveal all the fine and small details, that would otherwise be lost to the eye (like the tube-like nostril and the jigsaw edged lips).
