Find that Fish!

Sometimes, while diving, the divemaster points something out on the reef and no matter how hard I look I cannot understand what he wants me to see, either because it is so tiny (here's looking at you, translucent anemone shrimp) or because it is a master of camouflage.  And you can't really ask what he's pointing at because, well, you're underwater.  After the dive is over, there tend to be a lot of conversations like this: 

Me: "So, um, remember when you pointed to something on that reef, halfway through the dive? What was it?"

Divemaster: "?"

In this case I was able to see the camouflaged fish my divemaster pointed out, but only because it moved a few feet on the reef just as I approached it, opening its mouth quite wide.

Can you spot him?


The big reveal is after the jump:



There he is!


I think he's a variety of scorpionfish, but correct me if I'm wrong, experts.

Here he is blown up a bit, which helps, albeit only slightly:
