Fortunately, the landing craft's modest relief attracts many different species of fish. None are abundant, however, except for blacksmiths and jack mackerel.
The discovery of a small group of giant sea bass was a wonderful surprise! While I was busy photographing light bulb tunicates, I didn't realize that two of the three larger GSBs were parked behind me within arm's length. When I turned slightly to reposition the camera, I came face-to-face with one, at eye level! Foiled by a macro lens.
Here's the young one that Phil found. I took this photo as unobtrusively as possible, and didn't hang around to bug him.
After that encounter, several minutes passed before I could gather my wits. But there were more surprises in store.
Perhaps Paul Kanner (Sheller) could help us identify this limpet, which was under a rusty plate.
