Ceratosoma amonenum

From yesterdays' dive at Bare Island in Botany Bay, water was cold and visibility pretty poor at 3-5m, but quite a few nudis around.   Ceratosoma amonenum is quite common and this one has been laying eggs.  Image is rotated 180° as it was upside down on the reef.

Happy New Year to everyone!

Amazing colors and what a capture to get it laying eggs. You always take us to such beautiful places where most of us never go.
