Underwater Photography 3 – The very weird and the even weirder of the Oceans

Title Image: Uwe Schmolke “Eyes”

Crazy strange is an appropriate tag to put on these creatures.
Researching the photographers and their extraordinary work has thrown up some amazing dwellers of the deep.

Walking fish, creatures which look amazingly like characters from the Muppets.
Colouration in some of these creatures makes Warhol appear conservative.
Check out the Painted Frogfish below by Donny.

Darwin’s Theory of Evolution may no longer be a theory but the steps taken to get to this point are a curious set of steps.
The Scorpion Fish looks as if Picasso designed it.
The Pink Eyed Goby can only have developed those eyes because of depth!

I hope you enjoy a collection of strange but beautiful creatures!

Last but not least the Pink Mouth Frog, a species of Angler Fish by Oceana Europe. This is a walking fish which reminds me of a pink/orange Thunderbird 2.
