reef critters

Blue-ring octopus

reef shark

When you poke one of these clams, they spit out water

<--it looks like a floating rose petal but it is a 'Spanish dancer' or nudibrank. Amazing to watch as it swims through the water
<-- Blue spotted lagoon ray

Some of these seem too close for comfort - the shark and sting ray particularly!
