Mr. Mandarin by FreeSpiritFotography Mr. Mandarin by FreeSpiritFotography
Sorting through the gazillions of photos, mostly those I haven't shared, found this from last October. .

A fine example of why you should take your camera everywhere you go. I was at MD Imaging with an appointment to see if I had cancer. Took my camera that day, they have a large aquarium with various fish ... this is everyone's favorite. I was told that he is a "Paisley" fish, however Sheila Wolk, sbwnyc212, has informed me of the correct type, as she's studied them for her art. It's a Mandarin.

All I know is, his lips make me chuckle. :giggle: Just look at those lips

I found this www.dive-the-world.com/creatur… full of interesting info on this unique fish.

• Camera: Nikon D70

I hope you are ok and didn't get any bad news at the doctor.

Glad you brought your camera with you that day, this is a beautiful shot. The colors on that fish are amazing and you captured it beautifully.
