    How did you get those translucent dinosaurs to balance themselves on such tiny sticks for the photo shoot? And to do it under water!

    Normally, I might say, "Nudibranch Relocation Program", but I was with a class so it all happened "Naturally". Additionally, I only had time to take three pictures and you see them above

    To call today's dive at the bridge a "muck" dive is generous... There was almost no way to take a picture without particulate...

    I would describe today's divers at the bridge as either "Groupon Students" or "Macro Hounds"

    But I did find a Lesser Electric Ray...

    Jim - thanks for the pictures.

    We skipped out on today's dive based on the poor viz last night. Spotted my first bobbit worm so all was well.

    Looking for some help on a couple of IDs:

    First one I think is some sort of bass, I saw a couple my last trip but have been too busy to look up the ID. Not sure of the second photo, and the third photo is a triggerfish.

    Agreed Jenny. Best I could tell it's a Rough Triggerfish but these are described as uncommon to rare in Florida but there's quite a few at the bridge. Perhaps a young Gray Triggerfish?

    Thanks for the help on the bass family. Flipping through the book it's most definitely a Pygmy Bass.

    Pygmy Sea Bass, Pearly Razorfish juvenile (that's a guess, but they tell me that they show in *many* different outfits), and Gray Triggerfish juvenile.
