Photography: Daniel Muñoz (ADPR Major) "This photo was taken during a class lab day out in Tampa Bay. It must have been two summers ago for Intro to Marine Biology. We were out on the BIOS (The UT Bio Lab boat, a converted recreational fishing vessel) and had checked a plankton net we had dragged for awhile. Sadly, all we had was algae and this little fish. In the shot, the fish is on my professor's finger, taken with a Canon T2i and a cheap Tamron telephoto."
