A look conveys a thousand words - according to my dive buddy, aka my husband, 40 minutes inside a small wreck, is just a bit too long.

A pair of white/yellow leaf fish. Recently they have been fairly predictable in their location, but this time, they were unusually close in their proximity. Fingers X'd more leaf fish to follow.

Pleased to meet you ! A cleaner shrimp (pederson?) on a manufactured reef, also apparently my BFF! I presume it was fascinated with its own reflection in my housing port.

Symmetry in nature. A decorator crab during a night dive, equally, and stylishly, adorned on both sides of his/her shell - with co-ordinating headwear.

My favourite sponge crab - I call him "Tank". He's huge - about the size of a football. If he falls off the reef, he literally bounces on his sponge until he reaches terra firma.

This female cuttle fish, although initially cautious, after a couple of minutes ignored us and continued placing her eggs deep in the coral. Over the next few days she filled the coral with her eggs. Sadly this will be her final act.
