An interesting hitch-hiker

Shore diving in the clear waters off Clachtoll campsite in NW scotland, I discovered a tiny yellow fish clinging to the snoot of my camera’s flash gun. Showing it to my buddy, it jumped ship and took up residence on his housing. The fish was beautiful but absolutely tiny – only 4-5mm long. It is a strange-looking fish, related to the lump sucker and has a strange name too- the Common Sea Snail (Liparis liparis).
