My first pygmy seahorse.  I would have loved to have him/her looking toward the camera   but I m just happy he/she  is in focus and I didn t cut off any body parts.  These critters are much tinier and harder to see than I expected.

Blue Heron Bridge is a Muck dive of the Intercoastal waterway in Palm Beach shores. Lots of creatures migrate using the Gulfstream current and stop here to mate and feed. It is a great for any king of underwater photography. During the winter we have seen flabellinas mating and at the begining of May frog fish are coming back in April we saw baby octopus getting bigger. In October families of Manatees came by. In september we saw schools of spotted eagles...Seahorses all year round. This site is magical and you better open your eyes because you never know what u are going to find.
The access point is from shore at the beach but divers can also get dropped off by boat. Is best to dive one hr before hight tide since when the tide turns the current is very strong specially close to full and new moon and the water turns to liquid mud.

This guy posed for my camera at Blue Heron Bridge, Riviera Beach, Florida.

by Jeri Curley
This is one of the smallest Searobins I've seen--only 2 inches long. Found at Blue Heron Bridge.

Like a Brooklyn rooftop. Mystery reef at BHB.

by Kevin Bryant
An issue, sometimes, with diving at BHB, is that it can be difficult to get the banded coral shrimp and yellowline arrow crabs to stay out of the way. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Not the most colorful of seahorses, but a spot or two of color here and there.

by Kevin Bryant
I fumbled around in a panic when he yawned (belched?) and only got one shot off. I'd *still* love to shoot a sailfin blenny some day, but nobody'll show me one. . . :-)

by Kevin Bryant
They seem to generally be shy about showing their pretty "suckers". . .

by Kevin Bryant
Oddly, ran across this guy on the same dive as with the pink one - the only dive at the bridge on which I've found *any* froggies.

by Kevin Bryant
Might he have thought that he was wearing his orange outfit?

by Kevin Bryant
These guys seem to never stop moving. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Interspecies hide-and-seek. Nobody will find me a gaping pikeblenny, neither. . . :-)

by Kevin Bryant
An amazingly large helmet conch visited the bridge back in early July.

by Kevin Bryant
Afraid I overdid the photoshop thing here. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Not sure whether he was tasting or spitting at me.

by Kevin Bryant
Was this hybrid's daddy a triggerfish??

by Kevin Bryant
Bank Seabass, I believe.

Decorator up close. Nearly four feet of viz at the bridge at low tide yesterday.

by Kevin Bryant
I must have spent 45 minutes waiting for the eggs to show up, but if they're in there, I couldn't see em. Managed to also get some video of him doing some housekeeping, too. How can he be spitting sand if he's keeping eggs in there??

by Kevin Bryant
The jellies have been an issue of late. Seems the only times I've seen these things with their mouths open has been when they're vacuuming up injured jellyfish.

by Kevin Bryant
Don't do it!!

by Kevin Bryant
Finally a critter with a bit of color.

Another blenny.

Spring was in the air.

Where's the saddle??

Blue Spotted Searobin

by Kevin Bryant
This creature was oblivious to me for the 45 minutes or so that I spent with my port within a few inches of him as he worked away on his hole in the sand.

by Kevin Bryant
Do you know what time it is??

by Kevin Bryant
He went for me, but all he got was a mouthful of algae. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Another one that went for me, but came away with nothing but a toenail. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Yet another narrow escape. . .

by Kevin Bryant
lovely lashed hermit

by Kevin Bryant
another blenny

by Kevin Bryant
Don't know whether the lower jaw situation is a developmental thing or from an injury. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Wuz nearly gummed to death by this one. . .

by Kevin Bryant
Looks like a long drop from this tube thingy.

Keep on Truckin. . .

Only learnt recently that scallops have eyes.

by Kevin Bryant
Have only run across these things over at the "east" side of the bridge site.

Running low on new shots. Need to get back in the water. Don't even have a car wreck for an excuse. :-)

by Kevin Bryant
Twice ran across plumed scorpionfish on my last journey to the bridge. Had never seen them and was all excited about finding some big frogfish walking on the bottom. But, alas, these guys also walk. Still, pretty cool to this rookie. :-)

by Kevin Bryant
Slim pickings at the bridge this weekend. Tried the north side of the east "little" bridge at low tide. Right spooky with the bad viz and serious current for most of the dive.
