What a Fish

The Barreleye Fish
I saw this fish on the BBC web site, and I can't stop looking at it. It's beautiful, a piece of art. The BBC are broadcasting a documentary about modern discoveries. In the last decade, scientists and explorers have discovered a quarter of a million new plant and animal species around the world. The Barreleye fish was already known as a species but only recently filmed in the deep for the first time.

  1. I've just taken a good, long gaze myself. Wondrous. It's as if he carries a small, lovely universe inside him. He has the face of the man in the moon. The man in the moon blowing a kiss.
