This guy looks like he *could* rule the seas, doesn’t he? This is a lionfish, and those spiky fin rays are venomous. (I saw this one from the safety of the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher.) Lionfish don’t have many natural predators, so I thought this one would fit nicely with this week’s IF theme, “power.”
This is watercolor and Verithin pencil in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.
