After a week-long dry spell (too long!), I had quite a few nice dives over this past weekend. conditions were especially good friday & saturday. On saturday I found a lingcod guarding its eggs, first time ever seeing fish eggs underwater..

from Redondo Beach

juvie Plainfin midshipman, hovering in the water column. lots of these guys were out last night,

usually they dart into the sand, but a couple stayed still if you approach them slowly. this was

on of the larger ones. the adults can be huge though!

Male Painted greenling. we saw many of these courting the females.
