Ornate Cowfish (Aracana ornata) are found in shallow coastal waters from Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania and only grow to a maximum of 15cm in length. When taking this shot I deliberately focused in on this individual's mouth so that it isolated the rest of the fish from its background and to show off its amazing patterns and colouration.

Location: Flinders Pier, Flinders, Victoria, Australia
