Ok, here's the finished painting. Very tricky trying to get a good photo for reproduction that shows the colors correctly as on the actual painting. This is very close though.

Still have not settled on a title yet but appreciate all the input and complements.

"Mahi's Mistake".  I like "Seduced" too but I think the fly is more "Deceived" ....  :

That would be good also or "Trying to Deceive "

After about 100+ shots using different lens, settings and lighting and a little software tweaking this one looks pretty darn close to the actual painting.

Original and prints available to anyone interested.

Great work!  I'd just title it "hungry colors"....  Years ago I commercial fished dolphin - bailing them with essentially recreational gear and that's just what one looks like as it lines up to feed.  Most might not be aware just how fast they grow as they swim and feed constantly from the moment they look like a fish instead of just part of the bio-mass, drifting among the sargasso.
