Just got a new camera(Canon A710) and gave it a spin. It is a tricky camera, and its need for AA batteries is annoying but it has a lot of redeeming characteristics. It obviously takes better photos than my old camera!

Fundulopanchax gardneri nigeranius 'Misaje'

I don't know about consumer cameras enhancing the reds and the blues...this camera, though better than the Nikon, still washes out the color and browns the red to some extent. This critter(young male) was showing off for a female (ahh yes just like us teeneagers)and looked like if you turned out the lights he'd still be glowing. He had to dodge the older male who came in every once in a while and tried to chase him off.




Starting to flare.


"Where'd she go?"


Close up and personal.

Acosterus: That is an interesting looking one. Any idea what location it is? I'm thinking maybe 'Lafia' 'Nsukka' or one of the other Fp. gardneri gardneri populations.
