Blue Heron Bridge – 09/07/12

Buried Stargazer, only upper lip and eyes are exposed.

It was our first dive since “Isaac” came by and messed up the water.  Headed East which seemed to have the cleanest water.  Found an unusual bright orange thorny starfish, something I had not seen before.

It has been quite a few years since I photographed Hairy Blennies, so I took advantage of several large colorful males that were willing to pose.  My favorite subject of the day was a burried Stargazer.  The only thing I saw at first were a few spots and an upper lip in the sand.  Didn’t see the eyes until I looked through the viewfinder.  I was surprised at how big this one was as I gently lifted it out of the sand with my muck stick.
