I like to photograph the faces of creatures that live in the sea. Here is a sampler of fish faces. All of these individuals belong to the Wrasse (Labridae) family. Most wrasses seem to have attractive markings on their faces, which show up well in close-up images like these.
Shown above: Thalassoma klunzingeri, from the Red Sea, about 15 cm (six inches) long. This one was photographed near Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.
Shown above: Halichoeres hortulanus, about 23 cm (nine inches) long. Also from the Red Sea, this one was photographed at Ras Mohammed, at the tip of the Sinai Peninsula.
Shown above: Thalassoma pavo, a Mediterranean species, about 12 cm (about five inches) long. This one was photographed near Cape Greco on the southeastern coast of Cyprus.
Shown above: Coris julis, a smaller Mediterranean species, about 7.5 cm (three inches) long. This one also was photographed near Cape Greco, Cyprus.
