Just a few...

These were taken with an underwater camera that we rented during one of our dives (on my b-day to be exact), so the photos aren't the best--don't know the camera and all and didn't have enough time/practice to master the controls.  Not to mention the current was so strong that it was like being on an underwater conveyor belt.  But mana_trini did a fine job all same.mco  He will soon have his camcorder and water-tight case, so videos will be in order.

This is a trunk/box fish:



I think this is a cleaner shrimp, the kind that has a "service station" for eels and the like:


An Emperor Angel Fish:


a map pufferfish


a Zig-zag (gee, I wondered why they named it that?) or cock's-comb clam


and a last crab pic, taken the same day.  I think it is a ghost crab:

Thanks for the id. I have a good field (er, water?) guide for fish but it doesn't include much else, and the names are all in French. It is sometimes a hassle to try to find the equivalent in English.

As for the box fish, it is one of the smaller ones we've seen--about three inches long. I can't wait to take a pic of some of the others we've seen, like the roughskin box fish.

There is so much to photograph that I'll probably be posting stuff off and on for quite a while to come. :)

I continue to heart your pics. The very fcat that you can see through teh ocean water is something that inspires jealousy.

lol...It is true that I complained a bit about the visibility upon arrival, but considering what you can find in other places, I'd say we've got it pretty good.
