Hoovers and Wackys 1/25/18

Hoovers never fails to amaze with day mantas and so many others exotic critters.  Here is the video of our Manta, Kai-Zed. Kai-Zed with divers Sarah Bergeson and Tim Ugalde. 

We hung around the mooring with Kai-zed for a while, and actually ended up never leaving the immediate area because there are so many pinnacles, canyons, walls and critters to see.  Here are a few of the smaller ones we found, including a Trembling nudi and a Bubbleshell (good eyes, Sarah!)

These octopuses were very romantically inclined, though I couldn't show both of them together because I was using the 105mm narrow field of view lens.  Did get a video of them. Octopus love
