These two seals were much higher up on the beach then. Someone said it's because they were molting.
I call this 3 fish butts! :) Three Rock Mover wrasses.
Ambon Puffer. They have a really pretty electric blue fin under their tails..
Oh yeah, serious snoozing.
Juvenile Barred File Fish. Love the polka dots!
A very nice bubble shell. It was probably occupied, so I didn't take it.
Nor did I take the Cone shell! It definitely looked in pristine shape, so I assumed it was also occupied.
And the little Drupe shell below was hiding near an urchin, in a hole.
See the Sock Monkey eyes? Love those..
Big groups of goat fish, being accompanied by Bluefin Trevally. They "hide" within the group, apparently hoping no one will see them and realize there's a predator about.
Look for the red eye of this Spotfin Scorpion Fish. They are much more prevalent than the Devil Scorp.
Why was I surprised when it later rained on me?!
Leaf fish trying to be invisible.
The male Trunk Fish. My fave color.
Nice little eel, perhaps taking cover from the rain. Nah! They are IN water!
Drops of rain. Eventually, I got out, thinking there might soon be thunder and lightning.
A better shot of the Spotfin Scorpion Fish. They are all good hiders.
Snowflake Moray. Sometimes it's hard to tell where their head is.
You can see the Bluefins better in this picture.
And a very cute little Box Fish. Maybe two matchboxes high.
So, no octopuses, but I enjoyed the swim anyway. And didn't get struck by lightning. It's all good!
