Lionfish on Bonegi2

Biodiversity #20 – The Lionfish – friend or foe?

Lionfish are skilled hunters, preying on small fish, invertebrates and molluscs. They have excellent control of location within the water column, and can blow water jets at their prey to disorientate them before swallowing them whole. If you try to photograph a lionfish, often you’ll find that by the time you’ve set up the shot, you’re looking up its rear-end – now you know why.
