Red Sea, Egypt -- An anemonefish ("clown fish") comes out of its "home anemone" to distract the photographer and try to drive me away from his home. The anemonefish is not naturally immune to the sting of an anemone, but over time coats itself in secretions of its "home" anemone so that the stinging cells do not fire when touched by this particular fish. © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com.
