The hairy frogfish is one fish that is on every diver's critter list to find. They are super cool fish. Their talent to blend into their environment is truly amazing. I have had dive guides point them out, then showing me the underwater symbol for frogfish and it can take me many many moments to find what they are looking at. They sometimes have to point right next to it for me to make out the shape. When hunting, they stay very still. They push out their lures (which is like a fishing pole), dangling it, in hopes a fish tries to eat it. Once a fish is in close enough range, the frogfish leaps forward, mouth opens very wide and grabs him up. This 'grabbing' happens in fractions of a second. It is a very quick blur.

How archival are Metal Prints?
Images printed with the MetalPrints process will last for generations when displayed indoors and out of direct sunlight. Like any fine art print, MetalPrints should not be exposed to direct sunlight or high outdoor temperatures. MetalPrints have an additional benefit over giclee or photographic processes in that they are waterproof and have an ultra-hard scratch resistant coating. The archival value of a print should be judged not only by its resistance to degradation by U.V. light and ozone exposure, but also to moisture and surface damage. When these factors are brought into the equation, MetalPrints are an excellent way to preserve an image.
