Clown anemonefish and anemones enjoy a symbiotic relationship. The parasitic isopods like to hang out in the mouths of anemonefish. Perhaps because of the isopods, Clown anemonefish often open their mouths. These three particular fish were very curious. As I approached, they danced about the camera lens, and there are parasitic isopod in their mouth. It took me six dives, patience and luck to capture the exact moment when all three fish opened their mouths to reveal their guests. Finally, on the last day, on the last dive, I succeeded. Technical specification Canon 5D Mark III, EF100mmMacro, 1/200 sec at F25, ISO320, Sea & Sea Housing, Sea & Sea YS-250 PRO strobes.
