It was a quiet morning at St. John's Island, so it was actually a good time to figure out how to use my camera during night time.
Still, it was an early morning shore trip that did not disappoint. Among the special finds is this baby blue spotted fantail ray.
A phymanthus species that I have never seen before.
A black-and-white striped feather star. I'm going to dub it the Bandit Crinoid!
And this school of juvenile catfishes. Such cuties!
Next 2 mornings will be spent on seagrass monitoring. Don't fancy the early mornings much, but the marine animals are definitely worth waking up to!
