18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Frogfish hiding in plain sight

Nearing the end of my first dive in Maui, I saw a peculiar looking piece of coral. It took me several seconds to realize I was in fact looking at a fish. This Commerson's frogfish (Antennarius commerson) held still while I took its photograph.
