Amphiprion chrysopterus

Cuvier, 1830


Steve Rosenberg Amphiprion chrysopterus, Orange-finned anemonefish, Philippines. These colorful anemonefish are often seen hovering several feet above their host anemones. If you approach them very slowly and stay low, you can frequently shoot them against a clean, blue-water background. D300, 60mm macro lens.
