Damn wrasse ate my stomatopod!

This morning I was trying to get some photos of stomatopods in the wild (as I have mentioned previously) but I was outsmarted by a wrasse. The fishes must have been hungry because as soon as I snorkelled out they were all around me.  I managed to shoo most of the wrasses away, but clearly I wasn’t efficient enough. One slippery dick (that’s actually the common name for this fish. Very apt!) was much too fast and far too sneaky for me. You can see the results below.
