Lionfish ~

My 60 mm lens, despite its wide aperture, simply couldn’t let in enough light to capture decent photographs of the animals in the dark tanks of the Denver Zoo’s Tropical Discovery house. Things improved after I switched to my iPhone. I’m frequently disappointed in the performance of my iPhone’s camera, and then it pulls off something like this. A biological note: Lionfish, like so many other beautiful invertebrates, reptiles, and amphibians, are venomous.

    • You tempter. Hey, Christmas is coming up….I could use a Secret Santa. Yeah, that lens would have helped. Also, I could have switched to the 30 mm lens I’d stuffed into my purse, but I forgot I had it with me. Doh!
