Friday Fish: Holacanthus ciliaris

Necator sent me a zip file with pictures from his adventures. This one looked the easiest to identify, and I'm pretty confident that this is indeed the Queen Angelfish. I think this picture is better than several on Fishbase. Nicely done Necator, and thanks for sending it to me!

I thought the green moray was the easiest to identify!

But yes, I think you're right on this call.

Erm... that is why Google invented image search, for lay persons like unscientific me (incidentally jumping for joy at the return of Friday Fish, which I have now adopted, too). Regarding Necator's picture, my first thought was about how stunningly rectangular the fish was...

I tried out Google's latest version of image search, which let me drop that photo into the search bar and then it wen to work.

It didn't see a fish, it saw the colours and came back with pictures of various yellow things in blue rooms.

Arf. For all its algorithmic magic, Google was be stupendously daft at times. Do I detect some slacking in the blogging?
