Sea Urchin fields

 There are tons of these sea urchins on the bottom, they are so cute because they try to hide themselves with bits of coral
 When they die there are these beautiful purple round shells with the holes in the tops and bottoms left behind.  There were so many this morning.  
 This urchin is alive and has put an urchin shell on him to hide (in the center)
 The red urchins leave behind a smaller white bumpy shell and then the spines are also shells.
 This is mushroom coral, it was living, the center moves
Some on the bottom
We dive down for the shells
 and for pictures, beautiful spotted eel
