Trip to Bonaire - Underwater Adventures - Part 5

One of these sketches is very memorable for me as I managed to catch parrot fish in the actual action of biting a piece of coral reef off!

Other pages here are an example of little things that I keep track of under water and little things I see there. How a half-eaten carcass of Lion Fish attracted several scrawled filefish.
I tried filling grid with all kinds of coral patterns. Saw several nudibranchs.
Made notes about a Secretary Blenny that attempted to fight my finger.
I ranted about new tools (pen and pencil) I took with me that did not work.

I remember that while working on these pages I thought that I should bring an underwater magnifying glass with me next time to see more details, more little creatures and hopefully make a little bit more detailed studies.
