Sit & Wait

J. Antonio Baeza

Sit & Wait by J. Antonio Baeza Hunting strategies vary broadly among vertebrates and invertebrates in marine and terrestrial environments. This photography shows the Caribbean 'spotted' scorpionfish, a species that does not do much during daytime; individuals sit comfortably at the sea bottom waiting for a little crustacean or another small fish to pass by. Potential prey do not realize, until too late, that there is danger ahead. The many spines, skin bumps, and tubercles, together with the spotty coloration help this 'sluggish' fish predator to blend in with the surrounding environment until its large mouth opens to swallow up an unsuspecting victim.
