A parrotfish delivers a glorious photobomb on an unsuspecting diver in this perfectly timed photo. The snap was taken off the coast of Florida by Snuba Key West which offers guided tours from their motorized catamaran. Snuba lets you breathe underwater without typical scuba gear and does not require prior diving or snorkelling experience.

Parrotfishes are a group of about 90 species traditionally regarded as a family (Scaridae), but now often considered a subfamily (Scarinae) of the wrasses. They are found in relatively shallow tropical and subtropical oceans throughout the world, displaying their largest species richness in the Indo-Pacific. They are found in coral reefs, rocky coasts, and seagrass beds. Parrotfish are named for their dentition, which pertains to the development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth.
