Sceneries of the water filled
with fish is beautiful
and fascinating.

Go to the epilogue of
the first challenge of July

We got to see countless fish come up
on the challenge’s feed,
and saw diverse types
of fish worldwide.

And we even got to know
about new species,
and also fish from the imagination,
which gave us much enjoyment.

Thank you to everyone
who participated in this challenge.

So, shall we go meet
the winners of this challenge?

Unbelievable lol / @i.mary
Down in the deep / @Zaba

The Atlantic Footballfish
with its bright light
and mouth full of sharp teeth,
looks like it’s hunting for prey.
This unique fish,
said to have evolved
to survive in an abyss,
is by @i.mary.

The diver has met a mysteriously
patterned whale shark
deep in the ocean.
These fish are difficult to meet
because they have no habitat,
but swim around in large areas.
Today’s diver has met his luck.

Fighter fish / @Agnes
Sky and Sea with Cat / @azu

The betta fish with its beautiful
fins are easy to keep
so they’re popular,
ornamental aquarium fish.
But they’re also called
fighting fish because they are
so aggressive.
When it spreads its beautiful
fins out wide, like this picture,
it actually means
it’s sending a threat.
This is by @Agnes.

On a night full of stars,
the silhouette of a cat is
gazing into the sea.
And reflected in the silhouette,
is a rainbow and countless fish
swimming together under it.
The reflection is probably showing
the cat’s imagination
as it looks at the sea

In the juncle! / @LindyCoetzee
koy in a pond / @Louis

In a jungle somewhere,
some fish are jumping out of a pond.
They say that fish jump out
the water for food
or to breathe or to escape
from predators, and even to play
and for various other reasons
Why do you think the fish
jumped out of the water?
This picture is by @LindyCoetzee.

There is a lovely koi speckled
with black and red swimming
eisurely in a pond
with a blooming lotus.
They say that without special feed,
this lovely and unusual pattern
will fade away slowly.
This is by @Louis.

물고기와 소금쟁이.
Fish and Water Strider / @pokapoka
Coral Reef Fishes / @Sugan

Perhaps it’s because
of the cloudy sky,
but a grey hued brook
has a water strider atop of it.
The fish must have been bored
in the water,
because it has surfaced
to take a look around.
This is by @pokapoka.

Beautifully colored coral reefs
and its fish make a gorgeous
ocean scenery.
Unfortunately, coral reefs are
slowly dying because of pollution.
Let’s hope that through
all our efforts, we will continue
to see this beautiful scenery
for a long time.
This is by @Sugan.

Pleasure of bold flight
( Manta Ray Fish) / @Dr.Gazi
☆The fishes and the mermaid.☆
/ @N.D.T

This fish that is jumping out
the water, is a manta ray
– the largest among rays.
‘Manta’ is a Spanish word meaning
‘flapping blanket’.
Seeing the flapping fins
as if it’s going to fly,
the name seems quite appropriate.
This is by @Dr.Gazi.

A mermaid holds out her hand
to converse with some fish.
The blue color and abundant bubbles
remind us of the sea,
and add a mysterious atmosphere.
This picture with its
fairytale vibes is by @N.D.T.

These are the 10 winners.
