Hey everybody, been a while since my last post. I recently started working at @marinelabkeylargo and haven't had as much time to focus on photography, so I'll try and share more as I find more of a rhythm with this job. I figured I'd share a marine photo to celebrate this new job, so I found this old photo of an ocellaris clownfish, Amphiprion ocellaris, from when I volunteered at the JCU @eduquarium . Obviously these guys are famous from Finding Nemo, but there are a lot of biological reasons that they're awesome. One of the cooler facts about them is that the larger dominant individuals are always female, and when a female dies, the largest local male will produce estrogen, grow, and transform into a new female.
