Spotting

Description:

Walking along the beach I saw a small puddle next to a rock. This fish was in the tiny puddle that could not sustain it for very long. I think it just did not go out with the tide, so I released it back into the ocean. It was reddish/rusty brown. To give you some perspective on size, the bucket was a typical 5 gallon bucket.

Habitat:

Beach in Cape Elizabeth/Portland area
