Anne thankyou for your comments. They use their wings and feet of a sort to propel themselves along the sea bottom. Cheers.

Thanks for the opportunity to see such a beautiful and unusual (to me) fish. A fish with delicate and decorated wings!! Or, at least, they look like wings!! There is so much beauty in the world that we miss out on, that it was really exciting to see this fish.

Ikka thankyou for looking. Our Guarnard fish is very tasty. My husband has taken some of your countrymen out fishing. This is one of their catch.

Thankyou for looking Nanakiwi, Yes very tasty, although all freshly caught fish is scrumptious. Love the name.

Gurnard are a lovely fish to eat. My husband has an ocean kayak and often catches them, we have one in the freezer (filleted) and will be having it tomorrow night for dinner. PS Nice photo as well

Thankyou KM for your comment and for looking. It is one of the most beautiful edible fish we have in our ocean. Very tasty.

I'm not one for fishing, or fish in general, but I love these fish. I'll never forget catching one in my younger years, having to gut it. I kept a fin from it because I thoguht it was so beautiful, and put it in one of mums gardening books. It was found a few years later - with a loud scream. And GUM.. how big was it??? Great shot

Thankyou everyone for your comments. Gurnard live on the bottom of the ocean, and use their beautiful fins for propelling them along. They grow to about 2kilos and are bright orange

Unusual looking fish. From the thumbnail I thought it was an insect.

What a great illusion to protect it from other fish. I've never seen one of these. Vicki
