Photographer's Note

During a night dive in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, I found this guy sleeping with his face behind this wonderful soft corals.
"BLUEBARRED PARROTFISH, 'Scarus ghobban', commom in coral reefs, seagrass beds and weedy areas, also deeper offshore, penetrating silty environments more readily than other parrotfishes". (Red Sea Reef Guide, Helmut Debelius).
Its a male. Parrotfishes use to sleep in the rocks or between the corals. Sometimes we see some inside their cocoons.

Zeca
