Photographer: Paul Osmond  (see this users gallery)

A beuatiful orange variation of a Crinoid Clingfish (Discotrema crinophila) amongst the protective arms of a host crinoid on a reef in the Banda Sea in Indonesia. Typically these fish are the same color as their host and live close to the center of their host.
Because they live deep within their host, these fish are very difficult to photograph without disturbing the fish or the crinoid unnecessarily.
