Spot the fish!

Everyone knows what camouflage is, but few people will have seen a fish so well camouflaged as the one in the image below.

This stunning photo was taken by Andrew Green (dentrock). It shows a Goram Dragonet (Diplogrammus goramensis) on a sandy seabed.

Thank you Andrew!

After trying to order the TMFoA I was told it was out of stock by new copies would be arriving in a week or two! So hang in there if you too are chasing a copy!
