Monday scorpion

Its been a little while since I put an underwater shot up so here's some vintage indopacifica from 2006. This little guy is probably the smallest scorpionfish I've ever seen. The image on your screen is probably twice life size I'd guess.


As you can see it hasn't really mastered the inconspicuous camouflage they tend to go for yet but that will come in time. The sort of thing they ambush at that size is probably not too sharp-eyed and his tiny little venom spines will protect him while he grows up.
