Without hesitation, scorpion fish are masters of camouflage, you can see some examples in the pictures above. They lie motionless, blending with the background, do not move unless disturbed (remember ... do not touch, harass or disturb any marine life !)
Note the "danger" symbol on the lower left, this is becouse scorpion fish have dorsal spines, puncture wounds from venomous spines of foredorsal fin can cause severe pain and illness.
