Blue Heron Bridge – 06/09/12

Polka-dot Batfish

These images are from my last two dives on June 6th and June 9th.  Some of the highlights are:

1.  A little black Striated Frogfish, a nice find but they are hard to photograph because of the dark color and are usually covered with sand, making them look dirty.

2. A lovely little yellow Dwarf Frogfish that Linda found. It was sitting next to a sea spider that proceeded to crawl back and forth across its head.

3. A seminole goby. Thanks to Les Wilk I will now pay attention to these beautiful but shy hovering gobies. Next time I will try for a better shot of a pair before they dart into the sand.

4.  Beautiful nudibranch finds.  A very long Cuthona munching on a feathery hydroid, a Cratena having a bad hair day, and a stunning Chromodoris neona crawling across an encrusted bottle.

    HI Susan.
    I love the other version of the batfish 😉
    And the 2 nudi portrait are awesome. Did you get them with the 5+?

      Yes, I was using the subsee +5 diopter, except for the full side view of the cuthona.
