And 3 octopuses. Oh yeah. Way to make me happy.
He'e 1 started out peeking at me. Adorable.
Then it slid down into its den and peeked at me from further away.
Then it changed to this really pale color..Odd. Normally they turn that dark angry maroon.
He'e 3 out near the Don't Swim Beyond sign. I was thankful for the red rock, as it helped me located it....The octopus was quite the same color as the bottom. You can see some of the bumps that they can create on their skin.
Cute Ambon pufferRemains of a crab I don't recognize...
This I do recognize: the Devil Scorpion Fish.
Looks unhappy doesn't it?
Eel for Sue
This eel was two doors down from the first octopus. Hope they don't become close!
None of the regular seal and turtle protectors were there today, so this lady thought it was necessary to walk too close. Sorry, but people can be unthinking!
Male Box Fish
Needle Fish near the surface
An Urchin with a LOT of baggage!
These red pencil urchins fascinate me. I think there also may have been a tiny crab inside there....I see 2 red tiny things like legs...
From further away
Pinktail Durgon. I was surprised to see it rather close in. Normally they are out near the wave break on the deep side.
Lifeguard seal and rainbowNice shell...basket?
