this was taken in November in Bonaire...I thought the pattern on this Cyphoma gibbosum was quite unusual...and the contrast to the lavender rope sponge it was on was t me, the best.

I waited and waited and then this little gem almost swam into my port. There is a small amount of cropping on this photo. I particularly like her fin on the left side of the photo - what beauty!!
