A Closer Look

Usually we tend to look at things as a whole. In the case of a yellow tang someone would notice it is of course yellow. They would also notice that its height is about the same as its length making it have a very different appearance from many other fish which tend to be slender. They may also notice the white scalpel at the base of the tail. But how many people look closer. Just take a look at this macro picture of my yellow tang's tail. The pattern of rays fanning out to the end is simply stunning. It makes me want to look closely at everything I come across in day-to-day life.
