One of the prettiest fish in the Red Sea, the Sohal surgeonfish is hard to photograph whilst diving as it tends to stay on the top of the reef. I took this picture as I was snorkelling early one morning at the edge of the drop-off. These fish are quite shy too and move quickly, making it a bit of challenge to get a good picture.
