Scrawled filefish hitting a jellyfish

Another beautiful winter day topside. Below, limited visibility, chilly water, noticeable current and lots of critters. Today we found a trumpetfish shadowing a grouper, a hawksbill turtle that came right up to the camera, and a nurse shark that we saw several times. More critters included many angelfish, a cleaning station with a neon goby inside the mouth of a grouper and several schools of horse-eye jacks. Topping the day for interactions was a group of scrawled filefish munching on a jellyfish.
