Saw that critter again
 
While Diving with Gary Banta on Saturday, we saw this critter out at the end of Middle Reef. I have seen it before out need the shallow Sister area.

The critter was facing bell up... if that makes sense.. in the picture it is bell down... I wonder if it means anything, or maybe it was just trying to avoid the curious divers. :rolleyes:


Welcome back to diving Gary!!!

According to the Wrobel and Mills Jellies Book: "...often holds the 4 tentacles high above the bell." So I think what you saw is typical of this critter.
