I don't feel quite so bad about not taking pictures that cool when I read about all the fancy setup he did to take them in a studio setting, rather than in the wild, but I also agree with his argument that that's a legitimate way to make some awesome artwork.

That looks like a very small trout or salmon - what is it and what trout has all those large spots on such a tiny body?

It's one of the indigenous Japanese salmonids. Neat images, but obviously manipulated. I've done it too, as a method of illustration.
