I've had most of these fish for some time now. In the past I had a very hard time getting photos of these fish. After 162 pictures, these are the best I could come up with
Thanks Skipjack for the Flagfish, he's a beaut.

very pretty fish... how did you get them to turn out so well? i cant ever get mine to sit still to tak epictures of them?
I put them in small tanks and hope they calm down. Since less than 4% of the photos are any good, you can see they rarely sit still the way I want them to.

Wow! Your pics are really getting good! Maybe you could put together a north american native identification log and get it published??
Aw shucks Thanks.
I'm still working on the photos. I doubt the fish will ever sit still though. I just need to win the lottery so I can go to each stream in each state and photo all of them. I'm sure my wife would love that

Those are some great pictures.. what kind of camera are you using? Macro lens?
Thank you for the nice words. I use a canon A520. This model has been superseded by theA530 & A540. Both of which have greater pixel counts than my 520. I believe you can buy the A530 for as low as $150.00.
I set the camera to "macro" mode, point and shoot. I'm really not a photographer by any means. I don't use any special lens, just the out of the box camera.

I use a Canon Powershot S3 IS and it has a macro and supermacro function. That's what most of my pictures and my husband's pictures are taken with. We really enjoy it.

Wow nice pics teleost! I really like the fish in the 2nd and 3rd pic...cool blue looking. Whats the closest distance you can photograph in macro mode? My camera is a Sony DSC-S90 and has 4.1 Megapixel...I think same as your camera...but my pics don't look anything close to yours at all...might be my camera's CCD imager...I can only go as close as 4 inches...so I usually have to zoom and crop my pics so that lowers the quality...
I'm not sure what I'm doing right here. I honestly think it's the camera. The original photos are about 13" wide.
It seems the distance from the subject varies slightly with light availability but I think 6" seems to be the limit.
I believe the real magic is setting the camera to take the largest pictures possible and providing lots of light. With large photos I can straighten and crop the photos as needed without sacrificing quality.
Here's the photo after I straightened/cropped it but before I reduced it for posting on the forum.
