Perhaps next weekend.
A crab was once again hiding in this little shell.
And as I have announced before, these shells have a poison dart that can hurt animals and people, so best not to touch it.
This poor eel was being chased by a bluefin trevally. I followed quite a few trevally yesterday, but they all led me to an eel, not an octopus.
This poor eel had a chunk out of its hide, so not sure how long it will survive. I also thought it might be cranky, so I swam away.
And we have the nice Trunk Fish. Scooting away from me..
Found two different types of Scorpion Fish:
And Devil Scorpion Fish. If you have any trouble spotting it, look for the bit of orange: that's its fin. The rest is to the left. The slit near the bottom of the shot is the mouth.
This blenny was a good hider...look inside the hole, above the shells. Two little eyes peeking out.
Cute little Hawkfish. Just a sprout! Probably 3 inches long including the tail.
They are so delicate and pretty.
Two eels...I couldn't immediately find the top one's type...possibly a juvenile coloration. The bottom one is the Snowflake Moray. They are all over the reef in Poipu, hiding and sliding from one area to another, in search of food.
Here's hoping and praying for seeing an octopus next weekend! Perhaps they'll be in for the holiday.
