Shellfish and Wrasse

There are always plenty of different wrasse in the reserve but today I encountered a mixture of different ones. The visibility has improved so much in the last few days that it was easy to spot things for the first time in two months. Resident Comb and Eastern King Wrasse were patrolling the reef, as were a couple of Yellow Moon Wrasse and a juvenile Diamond Wrasse. A very friendly¬†Eastern Talma posed for a photo, but today’s highlight was finding a secretive Cowrie in a rock crevice, with it’s mantle partly exposed.
