More Snorkeling Pictures and Video

We had a free day today. One group went to the capitol city of Roseau, the other group went to the beach in Mero. I was in the beach going group. We did some more snorkeling while we were there and saw lots of cool things and got many great pictures, and videos. Where we snorkeled today was an artificial reef, constructed of reef balls. Here are some of the pictures and a video.

Here is a video of Caribbean Reef Squid (Sepioteuthis sepioidea) changing color

They use color change like this as a camouflage technique, to spook would be predators and also as communication to one another. The color change is instantaneous and quite amazing.
