Sharknose Goby on Brain Coral

105mm macro profile of a tiny sharknose goby (Gobiosoma genie) resting on a boulder brain coral (Colpophyllia natans) photographed in the waters of the Dutch Caribbean. Make this little fish BIG, if you like.

    I always love it when someone can make use of my photos. While I derive great personal enjoyment from looking at them myself, it always seems a bit more exciting when others can enjoy it with you.

    I'm quite proud to say that this photo will be out in-print, having been selected for a book cover, "Ecological Models and Data in R." OK, maybe not a New York Times bestseller, but some lucky college students will be carrying my fish around with them on their way to class.
