He'e 2 out near where the poor tourists thrash the bottom.....happily, they didn't tromp on the octo-den....
He'e 3. This was a small one and it didn't do much....even when I wiggled my gloved fingers at it.
These little snowflake morays are all over the reef. Just another reason I wouldn't walk on the bottom.
One of the tiny Humu out and about now....they dart into holes when intimidated.
Abudefduf. Say it aloud. That's the fun part.
A bishop's mitre shell. I tried to pick it up, but it resisted, so I think the animal was still in it. So I didn't "harvest" it.
Brighteye Chromis and my shadow. Lets you know the size comparison.
Clouds and water...taken from the water.
Same Cowry and a wrasse nearby.
Honey Cowry and urchin. Nice colors, eh?
I am unsure if this is a very small lizard fish. But very cute and quick.
Flea Bite Cone Shell.
Trevally and goatfish fishing together. They were circling a snowflake moray.
Green Coral and a Brighteye Chromis (at the top of the photo), which I didn't see until I got the pix home.
Hermit crab on coral head. (look for orange bits outside the pink shell.)
A horn shell. I think.
Tiny humu, hiding.
An operculum still in the turban shell. I think no one was using it, but I left it in case.
Pencil urchins. They are a nice contrast to the sandy-colored bottom.
I tried to compare the little humu with the Raccoon butterfly fish. I guess you need to know the size of the Raccoons to know the size of the humu....
Shrimp hiding underneath a rock.
A snowflake Moray eel, telling me it doesn't like me. Good thing I have a strong personality and do not take these things personally. I guess I'd be intimidated by something as big as I am!
Always grateful to God for His wonderful creations.
