This is a photo of a yellow sea horse, Hippocampus Kuda with a nudibranch on its head. I was taking photo of the sea horse when suddenly the nudi decided it's time to hitch a ride on the sea horse, abandoning the artificial reef above the sea horse

This is a photo of a flamboyant cuttlefish. You can't see in the photo but this little fella is actually pregnant. She is quite more friendly than most I've encountered underwater. She appears to enjoy the light flashes :)

This is a photo of my cuttlefish friend, nuki! I have been diving on the house reef of my friend's dive resort and this fella always shows up towards the end of my photo dives. He always poses before my camera and always gets intrigue by lights.

This is a photo of a very cute black puffer fish. This little guy is about 2.5 inches in size. Taken in Dauin, Philippines.

I find this photo amusing. Gobies yawns from time to time, I was lucky I caught this fella doing the act while I was about to click the camerea. Lucky and amused. Taken in Dauin, Philippines.
