So, on to the fun stuff:
1 Seal...V39 is its name. I'm told they don't give 'em people names, because that makes one become more attached to them. Boy or girl, it had a nice snooze.
My pal, who hangs at the beach quite a bit, told me that since there are so many seals, that could be the reason I don't see as many octopus. Of course, he also eats octopus! So, yeah, kinda surprising he could be my friend, right?
And speaking of that:
See the flounder? I wouldn't have, but it moved. Good camou, right? Look for the tail about mid-center, right of the photo. Eyes on the left. Talking about disappearing....it does dig into the sand, so that helps with the hiding part.
This Spanish Dancer wasn't at all concerned with hiding. It did have a problem being blown about in the current:
They are nudibranchs..."naked lung". Which is the part at the top of the photo. The antenna at the bottom. C'mon! Who could create such a cool photo except God?!
Brighteye Chromis duo.
So adorable...and quick!
Rainbow and paddle boarder. It still seems really strange to see somebody standing up out there. I'll bet people thought it strange when Jesus did it too. Of course, he didn't have the board...
Minnows:Not sure what kind of fish they were, but they were plentiful!
White Cheeked Tang. Maybe someday I'll actually catch a good shot of the cheek.
For some reason, a group of these Indo Pacific Damsels and Ringtailed Surgeon fish came up close to me.Pinktail Durgon
Threadfin Butterfly. Note how the black face coloration hides the eye:
Electric Blue Crab in a shell....
Trunk Fish (male)
Juvenile Yellow Tail Coris with Moorish Idol
Cowry shell hiding
And when I got home, this nice rose awaited and I actually was able to get to my camera! Winner!
Almost forgot the Barred Filefish:
These guys take chunks out of the coral...but they do look cool while doing it, all sideways....May you have a blessed Sunday! I did.
