Snake in Manado, North Sulawesi.
Slipper Lobster at Night
Carneval at the Reef Wakatobi 2005
At Tulamben wreck I saw this huge mantis shrimp. I had heard they can easily brake a lens with a hit of their legs so I approached very cautiously but since it didn't seem bothered at all I got within less than 5cm to get this shot.
The sun was shining beautifully on this part of Tulamben wreck. I couldn't resist taking the shot, though I normally prefer macro photography.

It's alwasy hard to make a good picture of Pygmee seahorses since they keep hiding as soon as you approach with a lens. This time my wife was on the other side of the gorgonian to stop it from moving away and I finally got a good shot.
I was very lucky when I saw this harlequin shrimp climbing down the edge of a sponge to get to the arm of a starfish that was lying at the bottom of it. No, I didn't put it there, but someone else may have done so before me and I just got lucky smile
