Red Sea, Egypt -- A clearfin lionfish turns for a hole in the coral reef, avoiding the diver's lights. The sharp spines in the lionfish's fins are poisonous, and are its primary defense from predators. When approached or threatened, the lionfish will spread its fins wide and seek to turn its face towards the reef, so that a potential attacker is presented with an array of poisonous spines. © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com.
