The face and the top of the body from an Orange Spotted Pipefish (Corythoichthys ocellatus) as it moved in the shallows of a hard coral reeh head. These pipefish often raise their head to provide a clearer view of their surroundings as they move through the maze of large stone coral colonies.
Image taken on the Botek Koeak dive site which is part of the Great Deatched Reef system in far north Queensland in Australia.
Detached Reef's in this remote area are named as they are near - but not directly attached to the Great Barrier Reef system.
