Clownfish, Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Clownfish have a symbiotic relationship with anemones. This one in the Great Barrier Reef of Australia stays close to a Merten’s carpet sea anemone, where it was found by professional photographer Carl Chapman. “I like the bands of color through the image and how the fish is hiding in the anemone,” the Australian resident says. Chapman used a Canon PowerShot G12 in an underwater housing.
