Yellow

Yellow

Today as I was swimming, it struck me how many different yellows there are in the fish.

Yellow is NOT a color I usually consider wearing, so normally it doesn’t really register with me when I see it. But once I started looking, wow! An amazing number of fish wear this color, whether on fins, stripes, tails or eyes. I am trying to figure out how best to portray this in a combined fish photo, without using umpteen zillion pieces of photo paper.  I’ll let you know how I do.

Even the fish (Robert F. Myers calls it the Christmas wrasse) I love taking pictures of, because it’s so brightly colored, helped me out today:

See the fin on the side?  YELLOW! and a lovely blue…

But first, before revealing the exciting number of octopuses I saw (oh, ok: 2), Here’s the sunrise shot:

Love how the pink goes into the clouds, too.

(Don’t look now, but there’s some yellow in this shot, too.)

And the yellow really appeared once the sun did:

See? Now you must agree how much yellow there is; sometimes it sneaks past ya.

I saw three eels today: a snowflake moray, a big green headed one and a whitemouth moray:

Because I have often posted pix of the snowflake, I’ll just do the whitemouth moray today.  (Even though the snowflake does have yellow on it.)

Here is octopus #2.  Breathing.  You can just see its eye: look up from the siphon (the white tube) and you’ll see a bit of red.  That’s the siphon.

Same photo, but cropped, so you can see the siphon and eye better…i hope!

So, I’ll work on the yellow photo, possibly combining a bunch of fish to show their yellow parts.  But here’s today’s post’s last yellow:

A bit of yellow rock.  Oh, and there just happens to be a bit of octopus #1 below the yellow.  She lived through the night.  It’s all good!
