Part of the landscape which makes the shallows at Wing so cool!
From Wing Beach June 14, 2009
This interesting small cave in the cliff is only about 10 feet deep. The 2 skylights make it awesome.
There was a significant amount of surge this day, which made staying stationary for some of these shallow shots a bit of a challenge.
Wonder what Rose is bringing?
Oh, a cool nudibranch! Thuridilla carlsoni, I think.
This gives a better idea the size of the nudibranch (or, for anyone who is a nudie expert, the size of Rose's hand). I'm not sure how you find all this stuff, Rose!
Lionfish (Pterois volitans).
Foreground is same lionfish as in the last shot. In the background is a Spotfin lionfish (Pterois antennata).
This little Periclimenes shrimp (Periclimenes soror) basically sees the surface of this cushion star as his entire world.
Another Periclimenes shrimp.
And here is the STAR of our dive!
