Fish of the Day – Yellow Spotted Scorpionfish

Yellow Spotted Leaf Scorpionfish

The little fellow on the left of the photo is a Yellow Spotted Scorpionfish. They always seem to hide in coral heads and are very hard to photograph. There were four of these guys in the same coral head. They have poisonous spines on their back that they raise if they are in danger.
