WW #36 - Rush Hour on the Reef



32 comments:

  1. These are Fusilier Fish. We call them the speed demons of the reef because they zoom along in a dense pack. Check out yesterday's post for more pictures of these guys.

    I took the photo at Sipadan Island, not far from where I took last week's photo of the schooling barracuda.

    Happy Wordless Wednesday.

  2. These fish are a fabulous shade of blue.

    I'm in NH this week (and next)qzyl. All I can think of are ticks. I've been here two days and I already miss Alaska.

    There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place like home.......................................Dang, it's not working.

  3. Looking very busy there ;)

    Actually, it reminds me a bit of the famous Escher drawing, but in bright blue.

  10. Great stopping (for a photo op) of those speed demons. We have speed demons in our muddy creek water, and then there are the minnows trolling along in the slow lane.

    Happy WW! I enjoy all the 'blue' you present on your blog.

  16. Lovely! The fish have such an intense look on their faces at the larger image size... Just like human commuters in the morning.

  20. If only we could take lessons about driving during rush hour...I don't see any accidents in there.

    Happy WW

  21. Looks like Jakarta traffic under the sea. Except the only speed demons in raffic here are the motorcycles! The packers arrive today to haul all of our stuff away, yuck. We only have about 3 weeks left to enjoy Jakarta.

  23. Thanks you all very much for visiting and commenting on this week's Wordless Wednesday photo.

    @ Cathy (tundra) - I'll bet you forgot to click your heels! :-p

    @ Sukhmandir - Yes, welcome to The Right Blue.

    @ Catsynth - Sometimes bright blue is The Right Blue. ;-}

    @ Cecily - Thank you.

    @ Gattina - Interesting that you would like to see this on the wall without a frame. Hmm.

    @ Will - Thanks, and I know what you mean -- time just slips past sometimes.

    @ Jams - Thank you so much. I enjoy the photos you post on your blog, too. Love your flower macros, in particular.

    @ Sandy C - Thank you.

    @ Chris - Not sure what you meant by how did I manage it, but how about this: good scuba gear and a fast shutter speed on the camera. :-}

    @ Jim - Thank you. I wonder what the minnows in your creek would do if these fish invaded!

    @ Randall & Ellen - I prefer this kind of rush hour to those on city streets, too.

    @ Keith - Thank you so much.

    @ Mary - Thanks, and Jerry says "hi" back!

    @ Abie - Thank you.

    @ Susan - Thank you. Yes, we've never grown tired of "being there."

    @ Kallie - I'm glad you took the time to look at their individual faces.

    @ Maya - Thank you. This shot does have a dreamy kind of look to it.

    @ Brian & Kathy - Thank you both. We're glad that others like blue as much as we do.

    @ Vixen - Nope. No traffic accidents there.

    @ Shannon - My own memories of Jakarta are of some of the most intimidating traffic I've ever seen anywhere. Enjoy your last few weeks in Indonesia, and good luck with your move. I hope it's as painless as possible.

  25. Bobbie , stunning wordless wednesday! It is always great to see what you are finding under the water now days!

  26. Wow! That is such an amazing photo. I love how it looks like something other than fish, and then when you look closer, you see that they actually are fish. Very lovely and beautiful blues!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Amazing! I can see why it's a favorite. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  28. It's probably a fairly silly question, but do you ever get run into by fish?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Very neat image Bobbie, I love the blue in this, they have a three-dimensional look to them !!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you all very much.

    @ Chris -- The short answer is no, the longer answer here. ;-}
