Yes I am resorting to this again.  I have no shame.  

If you are new to one of these things it is just meant as a mild diversion from the other goings on around here.  I shot the photos.  I hope you like 'em.

My Muslim sister points out to me the oxymoronic nature of the name of these fish. It isn't my fault.

The structures at the top are gills, the two "horns" are rhynophores, sensory organs.

These macro shots were all taken on a night dive.  At night you get lots of different critters out on the reef, especially crustaceans.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
