Porophryne erythrodactylus on kelp

This anglerfish - 'Sally' - has been around since July 2017 (that I know of). Roney pointed it to me then. This is the first time I find this or any other local anglerfishes swaying on kelp. It was a funny encounter. This isn't a very good concealing or disguising camouflage option. Yet, it's a really good hiding spot. :) Maybe, a kind of resting place following pregnancy or escaping the 13ºC deeper waters or taking advantage of the abundance of juvenile fishes hiding in the kelp forest these days or ... ?!
