This little creature was jumping around on a night dive off Flores Island, Indonesia on a night dive at 40 feet.

Strange, I did see the image and tried to upload it so I could flip it to make easier on the eye while looking for a match,

couldn't upload so I refreshed the page and image no longer there. :ninja:

 

My best stabs in the dark are

1. Scorpaenodes hirsutus?

2. Scorpaenodes strongia?

 

Cheers,

Jim.
