Colorful Squid on a dive around Bonaire

Squid are always an interesting encounter when diving. They’re generally a lot less skittish that octopus and can even seem a bit curious. This pair were quite happy to hover about while I took photos. I quickly learned that when one turned white, I was too close and it was time to back off.

I love the chance to take a close look at an anemone to see what little critters are living on it. Some of the anemones around Bonaire seemed to have huge armies of these Spotted Cleaner Shrimps as well as larger Golden Arrow Shrimps.

Longlure Frogfish – Friday Fishy Photo

Longlure Frogfish

Longlure Frogfish – photographed off Bonaire

As you can probably see, I’ve given the site an updated look and feel, making it more responsive than ever. To celebrate that, and other pending changes, I’ve decided to restart my weekly photo posts, using all new pictures obtained but not yet posted from recent dives.

I found this little frogfish in Bonaire, on the house reef no less, so he was only about 50 yards off shore at about 35 feet. There were at least two frogfish on that section of reef, which was one of the reasons I dived there almost every day. If you were patient, there was no telling what you would find.
