Another day another manta

Well this was a nice surprise on the house reef yesterday afternoon. I was mucking about in the sand looking for critter when a juvenile manta came and buzzed me- I took a couple of snaps but as it was overhead… well not such a great result but a welcome event. 

I estimate it to be just over 1 meter across, which is pretty small for a manta. We had a bit of rain last week which should have meant an increase in plankton- hope it’s eating well and growing strong.

I reckon the scorpionfish was a better find though!
