Pictures of fish: Marine angelfish

by Owen James

Let’s start the week with a new feature on AquaDaily – pictures of fish on flickr! No reason required, few words given, just honest-to-goodness aquatic loveliness to inspire any fish fanatic.

For this first installment, I’ve rounded up some amazing angelfish images from some hugely talented photographers. As best I can tell all they were all taken in the wild.

I’d like to thank all the photographers for generously making their images available for use with attribution, and urge you to follow the links to more great pictures on their flickr accounts.

If you’ve got a relevant picture on Flickr that I’ve missed, make sure it has the right Creative Commons rights then drop a link in the comments below and I’ll see about updating the gallery with your pic!
