Great night dive! Didn’t go very far but found a lot of subjects. Correction, was shown a lot of subjects. Thanks Linda and Judy.
First is a yellowish male Dwarf Frogfish about the size of a nickel. It caught my eye as it drifted by. As I was trying to find it again to show Linda, she saw the second one, a larger beige female, maybe a little over an inch long. Next is a stargazer that popped out of the sand and sat there for a few seconds before swimming off into the darkness. Found a very tiny black fish that I think is a juvenile Black-finned Cardinal Fish. It even caught a tiny shrimp. Found a large sea spider carrying a ton of eggs underneath its stick-like body. Some other highlights were a few different nudibranchs and sea slugs, juvenile tonguefish, skeleton shrimp, and a cooperative bobbit worm.

They are Grrrreat !
Thanks Judy, that cardinal fish was not even 1/2 inch long. I think I saw two of them that night.
Great shot Susan!!! I love the froggies and the black cardinal fish with the shrimp is amazing! And the side view shot of the cardinal shows such a cool pattern on his back half!
