Photograph by David Doubilet

The sharknose goby (Gobisoma evelynae) alights on the kaleidoscopic patterns of hard Agaricia coral, its body stiff and still as if posing for the camera. One of as many as 40 goby species of the Caribbean reefs, the sharknose is a cleaner that makes meals of other fish’s parasites.
