We headed for the deep first to see what we could see and try and find this alleged hammerhead that gets reported every now and then but no one has actually provided any photographic evidence of it. You know the rules, if there's no pictures, it didn't happen.
With vibrant rope and barrel sponges topped of with swirling clouds of fusiliers, surgeon and triggerfish, there was plenty of colours, like boxful of monkeys got loose in a paint shop. Throw in a few hinds and groupers and you've got an eclectic mix of marine life and that's your starter for ten.
Almost forgot to mention the Southern stingrays that were hiding out in the sand, waiting to pounce for the camera, those sneaky devils........
From the deepest of the deep to the beautiful ugly of the shallows, for your horror and delight, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the peacock flounder in all its glory. I love these things as they are so interesting to photograph, they have some lovely detail and colours, they always make great subjects if you can catch one sitting still for more than five seconds.
Another one of my favourites was also hanging around. This banded jawfish has been at the same spot for some time now and he's got very accustomed to me turning up for a shot or two. Or three.
And if you're willing to look hard enough and have some patience, the little stuff will come to you. Throw some mantis shrimp in there, spiny, rough head, secretary, triple fin, orange saddled blennies and much more besides, you've got a recipe for a thoroughly entertaining dive.
