Sub-Adult Garibaldi with Blue Spots - #120

Juvenile Garibaldi (Hypsypops rubicundus) have brilliant blue spots which disappear as they mature into adults. This photograph of a sub-adult is a great example of the in-between stage where the spots have started to disappear. Photographed at Catalina Island in California.
