The shell itself was probably an inch long....the animal, much longer!
I felt really blessed to see this one. It was so small that I could easily have missed it, swimming by.
It was on top of a rock.
And making pretty good time across the way. I almost started a video, but wanted to take pix instead. I find it quite interesting not only the shell pattern, but compared to the animal inside, it's amazing! Alex said: all that fits in the shell?! I think so.....
Brighteye Chromis. See why it's named that?
Buried eel nose. It was pretty well hidden. Note the long yellow nose thingies (yes, that's the scientific word for those!) Snowflake Moray eel.
Well hidden eel... well it probably thought so! Reminded me of a kid, thinking he is hidden...with his butt sticking out. ha.
Flea bite cone. Delicate, but poisonous.
The Rock Mover Wrasse that helped me find octopus #1.
Palms and gray skies. Still a great swim!
This seems like a nudibranch, but it was all balled up and rolling around like it was dead, maybe. Of course, I didn't touch it..
Another shot of the possible nudibranch...
Great octopuses. Lots of pretty. A couple of firsts. And this was on a day when the predictions were for bad visibility, rain and possible brown water! Glad I went.
