I do believe this is now my all time favorite picture. This juvenile Horn Shark is about twelve inches long. I thank my BBF Ruth for shooing me to the front to get the photo, I usually stay on the side of these wonderful creatures. This little guy sure reminds me of a little piglet for some reason.
Here is a juvenile Garibaldi, the neon blue slowly fades as they mature, this one was about one inch long.
This Sun Star is fairly rare to see off of our South Orange County coast. This one is out on the West-front side of Deadmans. Gerald was with me when we came across this one, Ruth tells me that there are two out there. It was large about twenty four inches across.

Here are three new White-spotted rose anemones. As you can see two are orange face and the other is very pink-purple in coloration. I made the swim out to Deadmans reef off of Crescent Bay Laguna Friday November 6 to get a picture of the first one. I spotted it on Wednesday but did not have my camera with me. That in itself was very odd! I never dive without it. I had forgotten to charge the battery and almost did not go diving just because of that. Glad my inner voice said "GO". I am also very glad that I was able to easily find it again.
