Clownfish Trio at the Aquarium of the Pacific

Snapshot from 2011 of three clownfish (or anemonefish) swimming at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, California. Not going to lie- getting a good shot, with enough light, of small, moving creatures through different mediums, (glass, air and water), is a bit of a challenge…

The energetic aspect is part of the fun- they are fast, darting to and fro, rarely stopping for a moment. And their duels with each other, for food, mates, or apparently just because, adds to this frantic nature. All this means that photographers are challenged to find great shots of hummingbirds in the split seconds they can- which means it can be a game as well.
