Royal Gramma

The Queen is 80 on 21 April. Since she is a) royal and b) a grandmother I thought I'd post this picture of a royal gramma (geddit - another bad pun) from my recent trip:
Royal grammas also known as fairy basslets or more accurately Gramma loreto are a popular marine aquarium fish (and one of the relatively small but increasing number marine species that will breed in captivity). In the wild they live in harems in sheltered spots (often caves) and will orientate themselves to the nearest surface which is why this chap is swimming sideways and you sometimes see them happily swimming upside down under overhangs.
