Eleven months gone and only one to go. It's gone really fast. I'm still loving it out here.
We did a lot more bird banding this morning. We are about 2/3 done with the Black-footed albatross and still have the Laysan albatross to go. Greg and I did a lot of spraying this afternoon today also.
Since it was a pretty calm day today, a few of us went snorkeling out by the water barge after work. It was the first time I had been out there, and it was a good spot. There was a lot of junk down there. There were anchors, pieces of boats, engines, and all kinds of other hiding spots for fish. We also saw a 4 ft Galapagos shark. Since it was little, there was nothing to worry about. It's a great spot.
I took this picture of an octopus and pencil urchins next to a nice piece of coral a few months ago. I didn't see any octopus today, but at least it's a picture what I see sometimes when snorkeling.
