Snorkeling Surprises

After our trip to Molly Smith Point, Madam J and I headed out into the bay for a relaxing snorkel. After cruising around for a while and even stopping by Aure’s boat to say hello, we had a couple interesting sightings. The first was a turtle, which was something I had not seen in the bay before. The second was a shortnose batfish (Ogcocephalus nasutus), something neither of us had seen before anywhere. While Madam J kept an eye on our little friend, I went back to get the camera. This curious fish walks around on leg-like fins and camouflages itself with a layer of sand. An exciting find!
