Sailfin Goby, Cozumel Mexico.

You place a mirror by a Goby in the sand by his hole. He sees himself but thinks it is another Goby trying to move into his area. Several things happen. The Goby turns from dark brown to a white spotted color, then pulls in his sail fin (to protect the fin in a fight), then flares his pectoral fins out and opens his moth like he is going to bite. He look like a small dragon.

12-foot surf in Ventura, Ca.

I was in California for a meeting. The surf grew over 3 days and the surfing was great.
By the time I got outside each day from the meeting the sun's angle and glare
was so bad I went black and white.

At one point , the waves at high tide where breaking over the Ventura peir.
The local surfers were "stoked over the gnarly waves" .

I was looking at desert flowers and stopped to take a 100 macro picture of a bee.
Up popped a Humming bird on the same flower.

Two hermit crabs, Just talking ?

Cozumel Mexico.
Seem to be the same species of hermit crab. The crab on top got there by his own volition.
I am not sure of the reason for this close encounter.
They did not seem to be fighting.
