Sunday Nature Stills – 6/14/2015

This is a small Scissortail Sergeant fish that I photographed in the Great Barrier Reef.   I took this photograph in the calm water inside of a coral caye.  The area was interesting because at low tide, I could wade out in waist deep water into the reef.  There were sandy areas between the coral outcroppings, so it was possible to “walk” around the coral without damaging any of the reef.  Because I was able to quietly sit still in one place, it was a great opportunity to see all the small reef animals in a relaxed state.
