Little  nemos ok. The blackand white panda anemonefish is the darth vader of the seaworld. Five of  us got bit by on one dive.two cameras dumped in the anemone, and fending it off with fins. Funny thing is , we all got bit on fingers, everything else covered up.

Pictures taken with old sony compact mostly in a sony marine housing. Didnt get to use new camera in sea, no snorkelling and most dives were below the 14m rating.

 This I thought looked quite abstract. its sponges on top of a big orange sponge, and a few tunicates(sea squirts)

 This turtle was eating what i thought was a plastic bag. fearless fidget to the rescue. I was going to wrestle it off it until I realised it was a pelagic colonial seasquirt that looked like a plastic bag. No wonder the turtles think vice versa and dead ones are found with their stomachs full of plastic bags.

HELLO FORKERS!

Still having a good time. yesterday we got a blue ringed octopus. deadly bite, but ots only 2 inch across. I will put a couple of photos on photo thread.

Sounds as if its been windy. I hope the housesitter put extra bricks around the polytunnel as instructed. His only email was to request the password for the virgin tv box.

I think I'd pay anything for a decent fillet steak at the mo. All the emergency chocolate has gone, I have fantasies about good english food. We will be home at the weekend, only five more dives left .

Have a good day everyone.

HELLO FORKERS!

Its not rained here since August. The jungle was hot and humid enough without mud underfoot. We did see the troop of black macaques, and some tarsiers, tiny with huge eyes. Back to diving today, and we found a rare ambon frogfish. Also a sea snake was swimming around ,but I gave it a wide berth. The roads here are dreadful, and very congested and very slow, so we cancelled a trip to the straits of lembeh. I couldnt face another five hours in a bus. Time for bed for me now. Have a good day, everyone.

Is this an escaped pet (or a boas dinner) or a natural occurring albino?
