Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 Photo #8 Flounder

With two eyes on top, and intricate detail in the camo spots. Snorkeling Hualalai video compilation, best viewed in large screen mode. The freaky feature for me is the two eyes on the same side of the body, at what looks like a haphazard angle. They seem to track separately, like a chameleon. Stranger still, the fish does not start out that way. As a young fish, it has eyes in the regular place, but then one migrates over. But it doesn’t go around the outside, it moves through the skull to the other side! Talk about looking inward to one’s soul… That’s a period of serious introspection… and neuronal rewiring.
