Notes These photos were the result of just dumb luck, and represent two descent photos out of about 20 attempts. The sculpin was in a shallow tidepool, so I had to wait in between waves to dunk the camera and shoot blind. I was pleasantly surprised to get any good photos, and especially enough to key out the specimen. Photo taken with a Pentax Optio W10 underwater camera.
