To celebrate we invaded Lighthouse Point and had some of the best conditions I've ever seen there. Someone knew I was coming......31C at the surface, 27C in the water, 30+ metre viz and no current, you couldn't ask for any better.
Given that this is one of my favourite sites for macro, it was time to got to work, especially as we'd had reports of some flabellina engeli in the vicinity. The hunt was on!

There were more than enough morays out and about today and there was a particularly nice little juvenile goldentail that was just loved watching itself in the lens port.

There were also some monstrous spiny lobsters out on the reef for a scuttle as well as some channel crabs of unusual size (as opposed to R.O.U.S. And if you never watched the Princess Bride, then shame on you!)
