For this week’s Thursday’s Special, Paula is looking for images which are ‘Forbidding’. I always find fish’s faces rather creepy. Hubby goes scuba diving and really enjoys close encounters with these creatures, but I think I’ll rather hug dry land. If I came face to face with something like this, I think I would forget to breathe and would probably end up in ‘Davy Jones’ Locker’. I took this photo at a local aquarium, and edited it to B&W for a more forbidding effect.
To join in Paula’s challenge, just click the badge below.
I’m also making this my Day 5 entry for the 7-day nature Challenge which my blog friend Gilly nominated me to take part in. If you would like to join in the fun, then consider yourself nominated by me. The rules are simple; you just post a nature photo for seven days and link your post to my blog. You can nominate someone each day to also take up the challenge.
Wishing you all a splendid weekend.
Oh my! He seems more like a villain out of those apocalyptic shows the grandsons watch! 🙂
Hahaha I can just imagine what those villains look like. Do you watch with your grandsons? 🙂
Well done. Makes me laugh too. 🐞
Thanks, JoHanna. 🙂
Quite a scary looking fish!!
Very scary, Aletta. 😕
That is so scary… 😦
Haha Yes, I agree, Pauline. 😕
I don’t think I would like underwater encounters with fish either, but especially not that one….
I’m with you, Gerrie. I’m not a fish person, except when it’s on my plate. 🙂
Not a beauty
How right you are, Marylou. 🙂
AAAAArgh! Horror story! Hiding behind the armchair, Ad 😦 Happy weekend!
Have you got ‘all mod cons’ yet? 🙂
Hehehe. Don’t be such a wimp, Jo! 🙂 No, still just a kettle and a fridge. Going out for dinner tonight and tomorrow. 🙂
Poor soul! 🙂 🙂
It’s all good. I probably won’t know what to do with my kitchen when I eventually get it. 😀 Maybe I should tell hubby just to double up on the size of the lounge. 😕
The stuff o’ nightmares! 😉
My thoughts exactly. 🙂
Poor guppy…I am sure his mother thinks he is beautiful..or maybe it’s a her.
Oh horrors, to think it might be a she! Not a pretty face. 😕
That fish has a face only a mother can love. I guess it tastes good, though. ☺
You and Dianne have the same idea, ZA. 😀
I’ve never been tempted to do scuba diving either. I think I’d rather stick with the kayak. That is one ugly looking critter!
Very wise, Gunta. You never know what might be lurking in the murky depths of the ocean. 😯
All he needs is a beard and an eye patch!
Hahaha Yes, you’re right, Dries. 🙂
I agree with you! Creepy he is!
Yep! I would be freaking out and especially if the body is a long …. 🙂
Me too! 😳
Creepy kool Sylvia
Thanks, Kathy. 😃
He really is a spooky fish, Sylvia – but I could have him on my plate with a nice sprinkle of fennel and some sea salt 😉
Hehehe. Yes me too but without the head. 😃
And eyeballs 😉
That goes without saying. 🙄
He is definitely a bit grim – I wouldn’t want to bump into him unexpectedly if I was under water.
oh dear- he is forbidding with that glowing eye!
Yes he most certainly is. 🙂
I’d never though tof fish faces being creepy but there’s always a first time!
Yes there is, Gilly. Was this a first for you? 😀
Happy Weekend! We share this world with amazing creatures.
Same to you, Rebecca. Yes indeed we do. 🙂
He’s a bit of a character! Rather handsome in an ugly sort of way, if that’s not a contradiction.
A face I wouldn’t want to encounter!
Hehe I thought not, Mary. Me neither. 😕
Not sure how large this fellow is but not sure I would be keen for an up close and personal encounter with this forlorn looking mug. 🙂
Me too, Sue. He wasn’t a small fishie. 😕
He could be the poster child for a restaurant on AMI ~> “The Ugly Grouper”
Poor old thing. I bet his mommy loves him. 🙂
perfect for the challenge, Sylvia. it looks creepy! 🙂
Thanks, Lola. 🙂
oh wow I used to have a fish tank full of freshwater guppies but I’ve never seen them like this, yipes! :O
Hehehe. I once had a goldfish, but it died. 😕
They aren’t as Hardy as people at the stores say I find
I won mine at the fairground. It was many years ago, and it didn’t do too well in the plastic bag. 😕
A scary creature to meet!
I agree, Anna. 🙂
Wow…his lips look like a humans. Yikes!
Yes, I think that’s what makes them so spooky, Jill. We’re all related by DNA, so there are bound to be similarities. 🙂
Definitely a forbidding creature Sylvia!
Glad you agree, Jet. 🙂
That is a pretty creepy looking fish. I think I can understand your reluctance to get too close.
Thanks for your support, Bun. 😀
This has made me laugh (and today it is almost impossible). Thank you, Sylvia. Be back again next week as I am swamped with work.
That makes me happy to know, Paula. Take care. *hugs*
