I was at the Belle Isle Nature Center the other day and got a picture of this interesting looking fish called a Longnose Gar (sometimes called Garpike, Needlenose Gar or just Gar Fish (or Lepisosteus osseus). See the wikipedia or the Animal Diversity Web entries for more information.
I got pretty lucky with this video, it was my first try and it’s as if we rehearsed the scene. I tried more than a few more times and I just couldn’t get the camera lined up (or the fish to perform properly)
If you’ve got a fast computer be sure to watch the Gar Fish in HD and be sure to click the full screen option at 720p.
See, doesn’t it looks like we planned it that way?
FYI, I shot this on my iPhone 4!
