We had trouble finding the frogfish on our third day. It was late afternoon, and both "perch #1" and "perch #2" were empty. We were about to give up when Maxine Welch spotted her swimming in very shallow water toward what I came to consider "perch #3". I had never seen a frogfish swim before, and it kind of trundled along half swimming, half crawling. It took off for a little open water swim to a rope sponge, and this shot was taken as the fish swam. We never found where the frogfish spent its nights, but I suspect it was somewhere near this shallow perch. Buddy Dive, Bonaire.
