Slow Times


I'm stumbling along slowly here, not diving because it is too rough, from cold front from Canada or someplace.  Big surf, murky water.

Here are a couple of photos for you.

The fishie is a Creole Wrass, and, yes, he's standing on his head.  If you look closely, there's a little black and white fish along the middle of the Wrass''s back.

Milling around.  These fish usually swim up in the water column, high above the reef.
But, sometimes they come to 'cleaning stations', here, you can see, close to the bottom fish, a little yellow and blue juvenile Spanish Hogfish.  His job is to peck off any parasites or fluff he can find, from the Wrass, or other fish that come by, and pose.  The pose is usually head down, with an open mouth.  Fins a-flutter. 

The first fish picture I posted here has a ?? another cleaner fish, the black and white striped little guy.  Sorry about no name, they all run together, sometimes.

OK, soon to get going again on this, my dear blog.  Thanks for looking in!
