George Brown A juvenile John Dory, Zeus faber, about 40mm in diameter. Ord, Loch Eishort, Isle of Skye.

Penny Martin Beautiful .. do you often see them ??

George Brown I've never seen one so small but they must be about. They become almost invisible once they turn end on, which is most of the time as they have excellent eyesight with no apparent blind spots. I waited about 15 minutes before it turned sideways to get the shot.

Ross Bullimore Time for another trip north me thinks...

Erling Svensen Very, very nice picture. 5 years since I saw one in Norway.

Fiona Crouch Seen them at St.abbs on the east coast of Scotland but never on the west and never so wee, cute.

Rachel Shucksmith I've only ever seen one, although I'm not that great on the animals swimming in the way of the turf. amazing animals and lovely photo George.

Sue Daly How cute can you get??
