Up Close Shot of Ocellaris Clownfish

Up Close Shot of Ocellaris Clownfish

Here’s a macro shot of an Amphiprion ocellaris clownfish. This shot was particularly hard to take, as I wasn’t using a tripod and I had a 100mm macro lens on the camera. Luckily, the fish was being very still, though it still took me several shots just to get a decent one. The Ocellaris clownfish, as well as just about every other clownfish species, is a very popular fish among saltwater aquarists. They are readily available, are easy to care for, and form a “fun-to-watch” relationship with a host anemone.
