Flamingo Tongue (Cyphoma gibbosum)
Rather frightening the first time you see one. They would watch us for a while.
Some candid, goofy, and posed photos. Laugh it up.
1) Ipomoea pes-caprae
2) Casuarina equisetifolia
3) Suriana maritima
4) Uniola paniculata
These are all sponges.
1 & 2) Oreaster reticulatus (sea star)
3) Ophiocoma echinata (brittle star)
I am in the process of organizing photos from my class/trip. Here are a couple of me surface diving before the rest are gradually posted over time. I do not want to overwhelm or annoy anyone.
