Occurrence remarks Very small individual, ~5cm long, very well colour matched to its surroundings (not unlike, but quite unlike this one which very much looked like someone had magicked a piece of kelp to life...), and was very determined to swim toward my light. I spent this whole sequence back swimming to keep it in front of me, and wishing I'd had a more suitable macro lens for capturing this one in action.
