Grand Case Bay Snorkel Report: Evening Edition

Madam J and I went out this evening for a brief, but action-packed snorkel in the bay. While I was heading out towards the boat debris, Madam J spotted a stingray, which was being followed by the same fish that had been circling me this morning. It seems that in both cases, it had been following a larger animal, hoping to share a meal. After one close approach, the stingray darted off, leaving a cloud of sand that you can see in the photo.

Next, I found that the interesting fish had returned. Madam J believes it is a scorpionfish. It was so well camouflaged it is hard to make it out in the photos. We also saw banded coral shrimp, arrow crabs and a juvenile high hat. The octopus from this afternoon had moved on.
