Hypsypops rubicundus


Large, bright orange fish. The largest were about a foot long.


Found in the cold, shallow water at La Jolla Cove, CA. There were many clumps of long sea grass along with kelp.


These guys were totally fearless. I brought a crumbled up granola bar in the water and they swam up to take it out of my hand.
