Landing craft, 58', off Malaga Cove.

This "large and in-charge" sheepcrab really made our dive. First, he received a few nips from a male garibaldi that was guarding his nest (upper left).

Perhaps he'd had enough of our attention at this point, and decided to slowly head out over the sand. After a few more of our strobe flashes, there was no doubt that he was chasing me! He is one feisty crab, and we'll visit him again without rattling his cage.

Concrete pier pilings, 79', near Redondo Beach artificial reefs.
Not bursting with life, but enough to keep us busy.

Old Marineland Platform, 78', after ODA removed the squid net.

This little crab was approximately the size of a pea, and I think it might be a young decorator crab. Note the bristles that are used to attach various materials to their shell.

We didn't see many nudis on the platform this time.

Polycera tricolor showing eggs, possibly within the female gland mass:
