Hide in your shell

Some days you just feel lucky to be where you are and do what you do. Today was one of those days, with good conditions and lighting and only minimal muppetry. There was plenty turtle action right off the bat with several cruising around in the shallows and hanging over the wreck.



The main wall was also awash with life and vibrant colours in a sensory overload to make you go weak at the fins...........





Dive number two proved to be almost just as much fun  apart from some dive clown who wanted to know what I was shooting and came charging over and dropping their octo right on top of what I was trying to take a picture of.

One of the many reasons why it's good to dive well away from other people especially if you're in the water with a camera. Ok, grumbling over. On with the little stuff and there were plenty of gobies, blennies and elysia crispata to be found around and about. As well as a good selection of swollen claw mantis and snapping shrimp.





Also got a quick shot of a burrfish betting a little eye maintenance at a cleaning station. If it keeps the eyesight good then I'd be up for some of that! A good smattering of hamlets were also to be weaseled out in the nooks and crannies.



Also far be it from me to mention but I have no idea what these flamingo tongue cowries are up to. Answers on a postcard.......





Wahtever you want to do in life, just do it and have regrets when you're dead. You never know unless you go so take the plunge, you may just be surprised when it works out better than you could have anticipated.
