Coconut octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) - I was not aware it was present in the Red Sea, and haven’t found documentation on its possible incursion there. I found a couple of them in the sand.

I spent a little bit of time with this blenny trying to get him to be confident in my presence. After about 10 minutes I got this shot.

I spotted this trumpetfish hanging out over a reddish coloured sponge. I got as close as I could and waited hoping he would come out enough for a full head shot. After 5 minutes, I decided he wasn't so I did this eye-shot instead.
