Day trip towards the island of Bangga
Today we went on a day trip ‚around the corner‘. So out of Lembeh Strait. And found some more interesting stuff. For the first time I used my macro-lense with the new camera and initially it was a nightmare. After the first dive I told Paulus that I had problems with it and then he helped me. On the third dive we had a 10 minute photo-session with a pink hairy shrimp and a green shrimp. I AM happy with two of the pink hairy-pics but not so happy with the green one. He kept moving around so that was not so much fun. 🙂
Not sure what that is. The remind me of ‚Ottifanten‘. First time I have seen them but they look kind of cute.
Some more of them…
Little crab in a coral
Not sure if the pink stuff is another parasite or if these are eggs.
That one was eating (not sure what though)
And a dark red frogfish
Some corals at Paradies Pier (but lots of sand flying around)
First try with a red hairy shrimp
Two harlekin ghostpipe-fish
And my pink hairy shrimp
In the back ou can see part of Paulus‘ hand. That might give you an impression on how small that shrimp was (which is why I didn’t get it totally in focus). And my friends the ‚Ottifanten‘ again.
Hundreds of the silvery-blue fish at the end of the third dive… that was really beautiful
Those first 2 images are Lady Bugs. I bet you saw them at a dive site called Batu Punteng, in between Lembeh and Bangka.
No, Pim, it was Sahaung. 🙂 If your guests ask for them you know now that there are ladybugs at Sahaung too. 😉 Thanks for letting me know what they are though!
Good to know they are on Sahaung too, I better start looking there tomorrow 🙂
