Notes: Photographer Michael Vargas, who captured this image, noted that it was the third photo session with this particular coral, one of his favorite subjects. “I look forward to seeing it every time I’m at Thinh Vu’s Texas facility.”
“The image was shot hand-held, with the tank flow turned off to help stabilize the camera and Building An Obsession Camera Tube, which allowed for crisp top-down photography.”
Half-inch frags of Reef Raft Canada’s JAW DROPPER have reportedly sold for up to $2,000 each.
See this coral, and many other stunning or one-of-a-kind specimens, collected in the CORAL VISIONS column, presented in glorious high-resolution print in the May/June Issue of CORAL Magazine. Starts to mail in the week of April 22nd.
