We anchored in pretty bay in front of Saint Louis. The bay is wide and shallow, with only few boats anchored there and a crystal clear water.
Next morning I went snorkeling. I knew it was mostly grass on the bottom, I could see that it was, and didn't expect much. But it was a pleasant surprise. We saw many pretty Cushion Sea Stars there.
This is Giant Anemone - or "Pretty in pink"
Tomaz checking on a fish trap.
This is Yellowline Arrow Crab, hiding beneath Fire Coral.
This is a Corkscrew Anemone, the pattern in the tentacles looks like a spiral of a corkscrew.
While I was taking photos of anemones up close, I noticed some tiny things moving between tentacles. I've read about the crabs living in association with anemones, but I haven't really saw one until now. Luckily I can now take photos of even such small things.
This is a Squat Anemone Shrimp, and it's only up to 2cm in size.
And these are Spotted Cleaner Shrimps, up to 3cm in size.
I like this one, because of the transparent tentacles of Corkscrew Anemone it looks like the shrimp is hanging in the air.
