Bowmouth Guitarfish

Although this bowmouth guitarfish, or shark ray, is pictured in near-silhouette lighting, the strange, almost eerie eyes and mouth are slightly visible in the face. The back-lighting adds drama and interest. Feel free to edit and enhance the photograph in any way that you want. The fish could be lightened, while the backlit background could be darkened if needed. This fish is also known as a bowmouth wedgefish.
Please attribute photograph to D.K. Pritchett. A link to this blog or to Southern Muse would be appreciated. No other caption or description is necessary. This photograph was taken at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia.
