    Found this fish in Saba at the beginning of the month hiding under a coral overhang at around 50 feet. It was around one inch in length and fairly unbothered by my presence. Based on size, I'd guess it's a juvenile, but that could be an incorrect assumption. I've been searching and searching but can't seem to find anything that looks like it. Does anyone know what it might be?

    Looks like a juvenile Ballyhoo/Halfbeak (Hemiramphus brasiliensis)

    My pleasure. Tricky little buggers to shoot aren't they? ;-)

    Cool shot. Mrs. Stoo takes a perverse pleasure in finding these things knowing I can't resist trying to shoot them. I have a "few" shots that are lacking... ;-)

    Not my shot. But I do have a few shots of Arrow Blenny in a hole that went unidentified for several years... They just look very different when they are hiding.
