Mosshead warbonnet, Chirolophis nugator
Having seen this finger-sized mosshead warbonnet (Chirolophis nugator) on
several consecutive outings to the same location, the photographer decided to
dive for a day using a camera lens suitable only for subjects of this size. This
decision proved unfortunate when the photographer found himself holding a
useless camera in the company of an exceptionally inquisitive 30 ft. gray whale.
