I didn't get to swim as far out on either side because of the waves, but here's what I did see:
Can you spot the 2 lizard fishes? One is just showing its head and the other most of the hidden-in-sand body.
Isn't that so cool?!
Abudefduf zipping about near the dividing rocks.
Blenny poking out of its hole.
Above, a Blue spined unicorn
cone shell hidden
clouds, of course
clam shell (empty! yay)
Some small bluefin trevally at a cleaning station
A well covered cone shell
Convict tangs at another cleaning station. The one in the center had just gotten his gills cleaned; perhaps he felt he needed more attention?
Devil Scorp, #1 of 2
Female trunk fish
Female Christmas Wrasse
Pretty fleur on the way to the car
Purple goat fish and below, stocky hawk fish
Indo pacific chromis
Juvenile Bird Wrasse
Another chance to see the Lizard fish...this one just showing its head
and the other one's body
Male Trunk Fish showing its face for once
White operculum in situ
Ornate Butterfly fish. It had a companion, but neither cooperated at the same time.
I think it may be poo
Rock boring urchins. In other words, I'm told they drill the holes they are resting in.
Rock Mover wrasse. They can pick up large rocks and thrown them about to find food underneath.
Another Devil Scorpion Fish
And the other one:
Convict tang, sergeant majors and a juvenile yellow tail coris, the latter of which I didn't see until I looked at the photo at home.
A tiny shell and a tube on a rock
Snowflake Moray trying to hide
Spotfin scorpion fish
Teardrop butterfly fish
In this one, you can really see how it got its name: Threadfin Butterfly fish
A pair of goat fish, cruising together
Oh and from my last post, the other, lighter colored Spanish Dancer is called a redmargin Spanish Dancer!
