Just a brief post today to show you some of the crazily coloured fish I encountered during an afternoons fishing on you know where.
The first is a Bluefish - which is a fish which is blue! And the second is Surge Wrasse, which really is the most insanely colourful fish I have ever seen! The guy in the hat? Well, the less said the better!
You can find more pictures of animals from around the world over at Saturday Critters.
Amazing colours. They look like they should be in some exotic fish aquarium.ReplyDelete
Ditto on the previous comment. Hope they tasted as good as they looked.ReplyDelete
Nature is so awesome.ReplyDelete

Woah - I had no idea there were such crazily colored fish in nature! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Those are some gorgeous colors!ReplyDelete
Oh that takes me back to my own day on the waters round LHI... it is just such a special place. I didn't get anything like as good a piccie as that one of the blue fish though!!! YAM xx
I imagine the wrasse is beautiful eating...the Maori Wrasse are.ReplyDelete
Are bluefish good eating, Stewart? I read somewhere that bluefish are called Tailor in Australia, but that bluefish is not at all like a tailor - not in any way...and, I know what tailor look like. I used to catch many tailor during our frequent visits to Fraser Island and off the beach at Teewah and Double Island Point also, when my ex and I lived at the Sunshine Coast
Aha! I just did some further research and here in Aus, the bluefish are also called "blue drummer"; and as far as their eating quality goes...I imagine if upon catching they're treated the same way tailor is when caught....bled, cleaned and filleted immediately...they'd make for excellent eating.
These are so beautiful one would think they were ceramic sculptures created by an artist.ReplyDelete
Wow, those fish are gorgeous? WAs it a catch and release or did you eat those puppies?ReplyDelete
They are so beautiful and so big, i cannot finish one in a week!ReplyDelete
Great Cauthen and wonderful colouring.ReplyDelete
great catch StewartReplyDelete
Hello Stewart, they are beautiful colored fish. Great photos! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Nature is an amazing artist. Those fish are gorgeous and the crazy person isn't bad looking either. :-)ReplyDelete
So, that 'blue' fish is clearly brown, or possibly black?? :)ReplyDelete
Love the wrasse, which is actually the 'blue' fish that I asked Ian about (didn't seem to be interested in fish??)
Also, stop telling people about LHI, people may want to go there.
Spectacular fish. Our bluefish aren't nearly that blue!ReplyDelete
wow! What a catch! ~ Both are beautiful ~ too pretty to eat ~ReplyDelete
Wishing you a magical weekend,

These are two of the most beautiful fish I have ever seen. My husband being a fisherman, I called him in to look at them and he agreed. The second one really left him in awe. It was the blue of the first one that did it for me.ReplyDelete
They are so pretty! I do not want to be cruel but, how they tasted? I imagine they were eaten.ReplyDelete
Oh my, who knew? Nature is a digital artist :) And there is no explaining the guy in the hat :) Looks like the best kind of fishing to me ... lucky, lucky you!ReplyDelete
Andrea @ From THe Sol
WOW! Very colourful!ReplyDelete
You should start a contest - would you rather kiss the guy in the hat or the fish he is holding? My wife has already voted but I can't divulge her response!ReplyDelete
