Creatures of the Night

Last night, we had an amazing, amazing, amazing night dive.

From the word go, we dropped in on a cute little frogfish sitting on the rocks wiggling its lure to attract prey...and from then on, there were more critters than we could count.


Some of the highlights include an octopus in a bottle, nudibranchs of all sorts (including a couple of big ones mating), mating crabs scurrying for cover when we shined lights on them, two more frogish (including one that caught and swallowed a fish bigger than itself), and much more.

We came up cold, shivering...and grinning from ear-to-ear!

I don't go for night dives often these days, mostly because I'm usually too tired by the end of the day to even contemplate doing another dive, but after last night's dive...I'm quite sure we're going back in tonight.
