Unlike most members of its species, who tend to hide shyly in caves and under rock overhangs, this Eastern Blue Devil (Paraplesiops bleekeri) was posing in the open at Shark Point, Sydney, Australia. Turning this way and that, and back again, it clearly didn’t mind having its picture taken – lots of pictures. Unfortunately, it was near the end of my dive, so soon I had to wave goodbye to head back to shore on the air remaining in my tank…
Shark Point is my “house reef,” about 2km from where I live in Sydney.
