Damn, it must take a really long time to put all the make-up on.

(Gorgeous fish)

Andif,
I think they use stencils.

Man Eegee said...

Looks like someone got a brain corral tattoo. Amazing colors!

Knucklehead said...

Hey Manny,
That`s a good one.
It does look like a Maze Brain coral.

dada said...

tribal indeed, like a maori warrior

very nice

MsNDD said...

I love the affect of the entire setting! Looks like little campfires off in the night..reflecting on the water..being watched.

Knucklehead said...

dada,
That`s exactly what I had in mind when I titled this post.
Thanks for the link. It works perfectly in conjunction with the markings on the discus.

Ms NDD,
Yes, & the natives are restless tonight. You can hear the drums, beating to the tempo of flickering flames.
The shriek of a Howler pierces the dark.
Nice image Ms.

NDD said...

Yep, does look quite a lot like d's warrior! Or vice versa.

I think this discus has been to the starfish's tatoo shop. Mr Starifsh uses a recycled stingray stinger, and the ink he gets from his friend, the octopus.

NDD,
Doesn`t he ride a HOGfish, also?

Looks like you surprised him during his tribal ceremony.

Hope you have a good w/e Head.

KH: Among the many, many photos you've sent me over the past few years, the ones of the discus have got to be among my top favorites. What a beauty! I like the HOGfish too. I'm sure I've seen him once or twice, a while back, lurking in the streets of Montréal.

Nice w/e to you all.

Knucklehead said...

Hey Evangeline.
I`m glad you like the discus. They definitely are beautiful.
As for the HOGfish, they`re sometimes called Pigfish if they`re riding motos.

Knucklehead said...

Olivia,
That`s why I`m quietly stepping back & into the undergrowth.

Andie said...

Beautiful!
Vive La Liberte!
It's D Day, Tony.
It's all over now; so now we begin.

Evangeline said...

Bravo, Andie, you made it! A loonnng and happy retirement to you! Now you can really let loose!...

Knucklehead said...

Andie,
Congrats on your freedom.
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
I just heard from Landsailor. In Texas, & heading to Yuma.

Knucklehead said...

Enangeline,
What do you mean, "now".
She`s been 'loose' for years.

olivia said...

Sending félicitations as well Andie ... :)

Happy w/e to you all.

Evangeline said...

Head: As you know, I don't really, really, think Andie needs retirement to “let loose”. Now as to her being “loose” for years, I rather think that she'll continue to be “on the loose” for a while yet. One thing I'm sure of: all hell will break loose before she ever finds herself at a loose end. Don't you think?

Knucklehead said...

Evangeline,
You almost loosed me there, for a minute.
But yes, I concur.

Evangeline said...

You make me wish I was in Malibu with you and Teri. Hey, I'm working on it!

Sleep tight, KH.
