Snorkel at An Spideal

New pictures – check out na griangrafanna on the right hand side of  this page —-»

An Spideal yesterday evening kicked off the first snorkel of this year  and try-out of my new underwater camera housing. A week of north  winds (offshore in Spiddal) meant good visibility but water  temperatures are still pretty chilly. Nothing too mind blowing was  seen, the highlight was a colourful corkwing wrasse which lit up my  snorkel with its  neon hieroglyphic patterns. This fish reminds me of the Pacific giant hawkfish or hieroglyphic hawkfish, a fish which lit up snorkels in a different ocean once..
