Try to find the Crab Eye and click on it

This Soft Coral Crab, Hoplophrys oatessi , blends perfectly with his Dendronephthya soft coral.  They were impossible for me to spot until our good dive buddy Jane Bruner taught us the secret:  watch every soft coral for a bent over branch and underneath you will find one of these little guys holding the branch down over its' head for cover.  Thanks Jane!
