Blue Heron Bridge – 04/05/12

Male Dwarf Frogfish (about the size of a nickel)

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.

    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!
