Pink Skunk Clownfish

Two Pink Skunk Anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion) by their host anemone. Three things make this image special in my view: first, their two faces are almost fully aligned. Second, the anemone is almost closed, with just a little bit of the tentacles visible, making it very different from the usual "clownfish cum anemone image". Third, the chiaroscuro, the shadows on the right isde, give a lot of depth and volume to the image.

Dos Pez Payaso Rosa (Amphiprion perideraion) en su anémona. Hay tres elementos que en mi opinión hacen esta imagen muy especial: la postura de los peces, diferente pero con las cabezas alineadas; que la anémona está casi cerrada, con sólo la punta de los tentáculos visible, y el claroscuro, la sombra de la derecha, que da ambiente y volumen.
