A very rare find and fascinating looking fish. The Oxeye dory normally lives in deep offshore waters, but this one got swept inshore by strong currents caused by up-welling.

"Hide & Seek" - No Photoshop, I had the strobe positioned to create shadow, thus showing only the face of the filefish. I was lucky to find this one pecking away at a purple gorgonian, providing a nice contrasting color.

Since they can't eat while the eggs are in their mouth, male Cardinalfish have been known to consume 30% of the brood before they hatch.
