Good eye! Were these observations all of separate animals?

I try never to post multiple observations of the same individual. We saw a single bargibanti on one dive, and five on another dive: one on one sea fan, and four! together on the other fan.

I used to be a good critter spotter, but since I started to need reading glasses, can't even see creatures this small without help. Our dive guides were good at finding them. I then used my camera's viewfinder as a magnifying glass to see, then photograph what was pointed out to me.

Thanks for the clarification maractwin! That is a good number of pygmies to spot on a single dive!
