Image of the Day: Kissing Fish

Though it’s considered to be the second most poisonous vertebrate in the world, this puffer fish (Arothron hispidus) seems harmless enough, kissing a camera lens off the coast of Hawaii.

That face, that face... It reminds me of someone or, better, reminds me of a whole class of people...

They look real harmless and sometimes even kind of idiots, like the puffer. But once you open your personal or professional doors so they may get in, sooner or later they sting you and you find yourself offside in a variety of ways, none of them desirable.

So watch and take good care of  puffer human-fishes when they approach you !!!

From Spain, good luck with "puffers"
