Hairy frogfish photo on my blog post today (post text is unrelated... attempt at humor about hair removal):

I love hairy frogfish but I find it hard to get good shots (at least in my mind). Anyone have shots that really show off this fantastic critter?

 

I have a nice face shot in my Sulawesi 2007 gallery...

I love Mathieu's shot. Gorgeous animal.

 

But here is the thing... if I showed Mathieu's shot in one of my slideshows I know I'd be pulling out my laser pointer. I'd wait a bit, then you would hear one person whisper to another "look over there, see the eye?".

 

Good Hairy Frogfish shots are hard. Good artistic shots like Mathieu's are adored by other underwater photographers and fans of frogfish. My shot gets an immediate reaction from children (Eeeeeewwwwww!!!!!) but I'm not happy with the image I captured compared to what I saw with my own eyes.

 

Why is that? Is it a depth of field thing with small critters with gobbly gook hanging off of them? Is it really good camouflage?
