Ceratosoma sp. #2
This clown doris was practicing it's acrobatic skills using a piece of seaweed as the rope.
While I was watching the show and taking photos a cray swam by giving me a slap with it's tail.
I had to make a decision to try and find the cray lurking in the seaweed, knowing those nippers would be out, or carry on watching the show. As it was not lunchtime, I carried on watching the arial acrobatics of the clown doris :)
Second time I have seen a clown doris and a cray - I wonder if that is a coincidence or if they like hanging out together *LOL*
Show was performed in the shallow subtidal zone on a rock face shaded by seaweeds.
