Virtual Snorkeling

Our little underwater camera takes decent videos, though I've never had luck posting them to my blog. They always turn out grainy and awful, even when I don't compress the quality. Does Blogger do that automatically? Anyway, here's an assortment of videos I've taken snorkeling the past few days that hopefully aren't a complete eyesore.

Huge school of blue tang? I think? Watch for a lurking puffer fish at about 17 seconds:

The sea turtle! These are of the first one we saw, on Monday. In this first video, things get weird partway through because I dived down for a closer view:

Moray eel! I think. We'll just call it that, because it was an eel, and it had a really ugly face (photo in a future blog post). Beautiful color though - purple and yellow:

Trumpetfish! First one I've seen.

I looked up info on this thing and found out that trumpetfish are closely related to cornetfish. Go figure.
