Butterfly Fish by Ama-Encyclopika Butterfly Fish by Ama-Encyclopika
Another installment to the animal mix series, idea courtesy of my prize-art trade for :iconeofish:'s Shark Week contest winner :icongogosardina: - they won with this picture: [link]

I actually did this one of the first days I had lost power thanks to Hurricane Sandy. Gogosardina asked for something, anything tropical indo-pacific fish themed. The fish portion is a Red Sea butterflyfish called the Bluecheek Butterflyfish. The Butterfly portion is from a butterfly named the Orange Sulfur. The coral playing the flower is the Daisy Coral, from the Indo-Pacific to Red Sea.

I hope you like it!

Done in Crayons and ink.

Hey many thanks for this - especially with a Hurricane breathing down your neck! Erm... and actually the Red Sea *IS* part of the Indo-Pacific biogeographic realm (which comprises *all* tropical waters in the Indian Ocean and western/central Pacific - including the Red Sea and Persian Gulf). So you've fulfilled my request to the letter!

Chaetodon semilarvatus is a cool species - alas one I've never seen in the wild. Only seen a few unhappy looking captive specimens.

Yay! I'm so glad! I thought it meant the ocean surrounding like, those corals by the Philippians and all those islands over there. LOL You learn something new everyday.

I'm very happy you like it. :) Enjoy.
