      1. It really is very recognizable. I can already see at the thumb-level that it is a Wendy photo, both from the photo itself and the caption :) Posted 4 years ago

    1. Thanks Claire Posted 4 years ago
  4. Nice abstract! Do you have any pics showing the 2nd eye, or the fish itself? Posted 4 years ago
    1. No, unfortunately not. They are so agile that it is already very difficult to capture them with the glass. Let alone on water height. Posted 4 years ago
  5. Whaaaaaat???? amazing! I have read they actually don't have 4 eyes but they do have 4 retinas! Such a cool feature! Never heard of it before! Thanks for sharing :-)
