A brown colored Robust Ghost Pipefish (Solenostomus cyanopterus) swims across the ocean floor in the shallows around the Kapalai dive resort. This resort is built on stilts above the Ligitan Reefs in Borneo, Malaysia.
This pipe fish species mimics leaf and other plant debris, and is regularly passed over by predators and scuba divers alike.
