A Yellowhead Jawfish (Opistognahus aurifrons) hovers just out of one of his burrows in the sand near a coral reef in the West End of grand Bahamas about to expel a mouth full of sand.
These fish excavate their series of burrows all day as they maintain them to use as protection as they hover in and out of the water column.
