This stone crab looks like its trying to decide if to give up the rocks for this  lost Pot  for a new home.  Often Lobster pots are lost to bad weather but ironically become homes to many animals after.

Underwater Photo Location: Bloody Bay Wall - Little Cayman

How Hot is this Dive Site? click a star to rate it
My wife and I have been diving on Little Cayman since 1989. We've dived throughout the Caribbean and also two trips to the Bligh Water in Fiji. I can't imagine a more dramatic wall dive anywhere, at least in the western hemisphere. Bloody Bay Wall crests in water less that 20 feet deep, then goes vertical to 2000 feet deep. It's like floating along the walls of the Grand Canyon, with deep ravines and undercuts, and marine life of all forms just teeming on the wall and on the colorful coral gardens on top. There are enough swim-throughs, arches, and other formations to keep anyone in awe. As great as the wall is for wide-angle photography, I've taken some great macro shots here too.

A site that has to be seen to believe!
