Nice MohawkOne of my favorite reef inhabitants is the tube blenny. These little guys live in holes on the reef and will just randomly pop their heads out when you're swimming by. They were all over the reefs off Caño Island, and I really liked this one, which is a tufted tube blenny, because it looks like it has a mohawk.
The Story Behind the Images
Sport Diver Editor Eric Michael traveled to Costa Rica looking to experience one of the country's most feral regions — the Osa Peninsula. Based at the Aguila de Osa Inn in the remote village of Drake Bay, Eric and his team explored the surrounding jungles of the Corcovado National Park, along with diving the teeming depths off nearby Caño Island. The vast abundance, intensity and diversity of the wildlife they discovered — both above and below the surface — was astonishing. In the above photo gallery, Eric shares some behind-the-scenes stories about the trip's top photos.
