I take frequent walks along a Central Texas cree and document the flora and fauna extensively. The natural state of these creeks is crystalline clear. In their natural state they are populated with a variety of brightly colored sun fish. Apparently the sun fish do not survive in turbidity. I am interested in any fish that can survive in the environment metamorphed from the crystalline state.
I decided the study the specimen, I do this in metal because it forces to to contemplate the entire ecology of the subject.
I Photoshopped the image to get a better understanding of the bone and muscle structure
Like the mosquito fish, an invasive species in the area, this baby uses its side fins to stabilize against the flow, allowing it to stay in pools and eddies when the water rises.
Shown from the point of view of the fish, with indistinct entities walking around, unobserved in another realm of existence on the creek bank.
