Kapalai always offers a large variety of critters for the macro enthusiast. During any regular dive to the 10+ diving sites around the area, it is guaranteed that you will have a lot of opportunities to get that one shot you want smile

I discovered this gorgeous little 12mm Egg Shell False Cowry (Pseudosimnia punctata) almost at the end of our dive in only 7 metres of water. I needed stacked Inon UCL-165 close up lenses and a lot of patience to get the shot in surge.
