Hi Brian

Thanks a million for the comment; yes I was lucky to see this guy going just over a rock and not really anoyed by me thaking shots after shots of is face.

We have been travelling in Indonesia for the last two months, and before that we where in Thailand in Ko Lipe if you remember the photo I posted on Digidiver, we will remain on the road for some time at least until we get somwhere we like so much that we want to stay and restart a dive shop,but until then the road is a lot of fun.

Did you leave Digidiver to I haven't seen any comment as moderator from you in a while?

Hope to see you soone at least on the net somewhere.

The limapontiidae- lembeh costadiella is one of my favorite Nudibranchs.

message Yves

Yup we found some at Perhentian.

We were diving and I notice the same leafy sea grass as in Anilao.

Upon closer inspection - I was amazed to see they also had the same critter at Perhentian.

Yes, I can confirm, that I thought Jeffrey was playing a joke with a tiny speck on a piece of green weed when he showed them to me in the bay with D'Lagoon at the top. You shouldn't feel bad Yves, you need eyes like a microscope to see them. For my photo website

For my complete Perhentian set website

message Hi Rian I've the feeling looking at your pix of the Perhentian that you saw almost more then I've seen in all my yers I was there.

Good on you not so many people are willing to take yhe chace to go there since it as no real good name for diving especially compared to Sipadan

OK see you smile

It wasn't at D'Lagoon, but it was in the same bay. I think there is a wind turbine overlooking the bay and the power cables come down to a small hut near the beach. We dived opposite the hut, but about 200m out to sea. The area we were in had a sandy bottom with sea grass.

I would never have found them, they were too tiny. I think Jeffrey brought them with him and stuck them on the grass, that's they only way I can explain how he knew they were there. wink
