7 of us had a great weekend at La Bufadora (near Ensenada, Mexico). Really nice vis, lots of life.
Shore Dive: "The Arch"
Senorita, Sunflower star
Baitfish (most likely Anchovies) being chased by Yellowtail
Sunflower star trying to eat 2 Hopkin's Roses
First Boat Dive: Submerged Pinnacles
2 Blue-ringed Top Snails
Baitfish blocking the sun
Cadlina luteomarginata Nudibranch
Two sets of nudibranch eggs
Slower-moving baitfish, Jack Mackeral
Rockfish and some kelp
Archidoris odhneri nudibranch, laying eggs
Sean. My Strobe set off sean's strobe
THe Jack Mackerel continued to pass us
Sean took this photo, this fish thought he was a dog, it kept trying to nuzzle sean.
My strobe didn't work on the 2nd boat dive, Candlesticks. I managed a photo of this nudibranch. The dive was nice though!
Atagema alba nudibranch
2nd Day, 1st dive: Eagle Reef. Vis was over 60ft below 100ft depth.
Finger sponge and brittle stars
Sea Fan and brittle stars
7-armed Bat Star
THe last dive was at little white rock. The site was surgy in the shallows, but full of life.
