Photographer Captures Stunning Movements of Siamese Fighting Fish



When Bangkok based photographer Visarute Angkatavanich was young, his father gave him Betta fish to keep as pets. Watching how they move three dimensionally, he remembers feeling mesmerized by the beautiful, multicolored creatures. And as any curious and imaginative child might wonder, how is it they can they breathe in water, while other animals cannot? This early experience with Betta fish sparked a life-long interest in the animal.
