Good morning out there, sorry for the no-blogs the past few days have been doing a bit of traveling and in doing so met some of the greatest folks in the world! Someone had asked me the other day about our three island dogs and how they are doing and other than a little hip problem with Inca they are all doing great, especially Joy!

I have another super tiny fish for you all today called a Palatogobius grandoculus or for those of us not in the science world, a goby! This was yet another tiny little thing about an inch in length covered in bright neon stripes and a wild looking neon yellow eye, this is such a cool little creature! Many of these tiny gobies will perch themselves on top of an object and sit there motionless for a long period of time giving your truly plenty of time to take a few shots. I am close to getting all the finds posted from our last trip to the Caribbean with the Smithsonian, I have about 10 left then I will start on the trip before that to Bonaire, so trust me there is no end to my photos..

Be safe out there, see you tomorrow…

Barry
