Imagine the adaptation here: the bioluminescent orb only works above the water surface and the fish only perceives black and white contrasts… it only sees the shadow off some organism floating on the surface directly below its orb and then it can rise for the food to enter its mouth. Being so close to the surface makes the fish vulnerable to attack, but its fearsome row of teeth may also frighten away predators… al teals, those who can see them. Perhaps not the most efficient design, but amazing to think about. I’m really enjoying the way the horizon if dragged back by the colours. Also, there is some tension in the optical effect. of the fish being flat on the surface of the composition… is it under the water, or flying over it?

What do you see?

More to come…
