This was another tough week for judging the POTW. Again it came down to two photos and again yours truly served as the tie breaker. The subject for the two photos under consideration were the same. It was a couple of Yellow Head Wrasse engaging in either aggressive or romantic behavior – I’m not quite sure which. As I was observing the fish, I notice they both were locking open jaws – somewhat resembling a kiss. However when I opened the images in LightRoom and noticed the exposed teeth, it seems they are exhibiting some sort of dominance behavior.
Regardless of the behavior, I think the photo turned out great – especially considering I didn’t have time to change any of the settings on my camera fearing I would miss my window of opportunity.
Equipment and settings: Nikon D850 / 60mm / INON z330 strobes / f16 / 1/160th / ISO 320.
