When I first jumped in I was immediately met with a Common Stingaree cruising along in the shallows.
Even though the water was very green I managed to get a few more shots of Sea Hare's.
However, the highlight was two Gloomy Octopuses I found close together. At the start, I spotted the little one's eyes between two rocks.
However, once I turned around I found a bigger Gloomy (larger than a basketball) well camouflaged into the rocks.
At the end of watching these two for awhile, I got the chance to see something pretty incredible. With a male Blue Groper cruising over the head of the big Octopus before quickly taking a bite out of the smaller one which let out a big jet of black ink. Although I didn't get great photos as I was too interested in watching, I hope you get the picture.
