I would wear this to a physics exam, in the hope that there would be an adorable/easy question on it. Cute design!

Interesting sub. I get it, I do. I get the fish and the action - shooting the bug. I even get the disjointedness of the water plants caused by the plane of the water surface. I don't get the green blob the bug is on. I know it's a leaf, but that's not what I see. The amorphous leaf combined with the 'schematic' outline drawing comes together to my eye like a duck wearing a green hooded slicker. I can't unsee it!

Thanks for the comments! =)
And yep, the fish is an archerfish, known to be very accurate in shooting down bugs with water.

Now that you mention it...yeah, it really is hard to unsee!
