I can't resist this guys :)
We headed to Cobalt right after breakfast. I had a great photo dive on my first dive. I got a green blenny on a yellow sponge that made great negative space. Then I saw a secretary blenny on a purple home. Very pleasant shot too.

I didn’t find much on the second dive. Then we headed home for lunch we had leftover home made chicken and pasta from the day before. We caught up with emails and watched a movie. Then we returned for 2 more dives at cobalt. The dusk dive was sort of boring we didn’t see much action going on but the night dive was awesome. I saw a big Clingfish. It was the first time I see one of those and they are very cute. Turquoise lettuces were everywhere. Steve pointed out a white Nudibranch on a brown sponge but the contrast made to balance the exposure difficult. We returned to the clear shrimp with eggs eating a worm on the coral head. Then is when Steve got his awesome shot. I moved on to a juvenile flamingo tongue on a coral branch. I have to say I should call it a string it was so thin. The result reminds me a couple of photos I have taken before. Maybe I am developing a style on my own. I also saw a few different crabs but not the clown one. Steve pointed out a bunch of Doris camouflaged on a sponge so cool. They were at least 7 or 8. My best photo is the one with a group of three.

Super macro. I took this with the 10+ close-up lens. The branch looked like a thin string swinging back and forward. This is my second favorite shot. Sort of abstract. :)
