Cuttlefish at Yellow wall,, Nusa Kode, Indonesia. 2005
Found this little one off Wakatobi, south Sulawesi. D70, Subal, 60mm macro.
Multi-Pustuled Mexichromis up close.
If this Scorpion fish let its beard grow any longer he would no longer be able to swim.
Sweetlips, Indonesia 2005
Juvenile batfish, off Sangeang, Indonesia. (2005)
Two harlequins shrimp sharing there favorite food. Notice the difference in size.
A shrimp rest on a vivd red corallimorph.
"Loaded Spring" Everytime I tried to take a photo of this little Hawkfish it would raise it fins then lower them in a split second and shoot of in a different direction. Olympus C5050, Inon D-180 Strobe
Harlequin shrimps are for me, so far the best photo model. They don't move and are very good looking.
Another Balinesse beauty. Her name is Ornate Elysia.
"Peas in a Pod" When I swam over the top of a hole one head popped up then a second. All lit up and the mesmerising sway, I thought they were going to get tangled at one stage. Olympus C5050, Inon D-180 Strobe.
Tulamben has some very good looking nudis like this painted hypselodoris
"Sponge Flare" When i first took this shot it I didn't think the Lion Fish blended in that well at a later viewing the red of the fish and pink sponge seemed to meld into one, so I decided to add some colour.
"Lumpy" This nudi was in the shallow's at Tulumben, a great contrast to the black volcanic sand.
A nice Harlequin Shrimp, near Tulamben, we where looking for a blue one from last year but we found this pink one instead!
"Tricky Path" Whilst diving around the Liberty Wreck in Tulamben, noticed this shrimp negotiating its way through the anemone. It almost looked like it had a drunks swagger with 6 left legs.
Snapper at Tulamben Liberty wreck. This is a great place for all kinds of marine life.
As this ghost pipefish was hiding in a featherstar it made for a beautiful background. It took a while though to get this shot, it didn't want to let me get that near and kept moving away. Patience, patience, patience I'm starting to learn.
"Who Me!" Just set myself up to shoot this Scorpion Fish head on and it yawned just after i pressed the shutter, nothing happened !!in my eagerness I hadn't turned the strobe on. I waited for some time for a repeat with no success.
"White Scorpion" The Tube Sponge that the Scorpion Fish was lying on was white (Without Strobe) so it was difficult to spot. Taken with Olympus C5050, Inon D180 Strobe.
I had 2 Inon macro lenses as well as en epoque lens on my Camera housing to take this picture of the face of a harlequin shrimp. I had to get real close to focus and not much depth of field.
These spine cheek anemone fish never want to sit still for the picture, they just move and move and my camera wouldn't focus on them. So I just focused on the anemone instead and waited for the fish to swim in front of my camera.
Nudibranch tail, I love the colors of this picture. I was quite deep when I took the picture and was nearing deco time so I only got one shot, but I like the result.
As I got closer and closer to this cute little pufferfish I was amazed how tame it was. I'm used to fish swimming away as soon as I get close, but not this one. He really liked his picture being taken with my Olympus C-5050 camera and Inon strobe.
Taken at Seraya Secrets, Bali, Indonesia. Thus ends my Bali/Tulamben (Feb 06) photo series, do look out for my Sabah/Borneo (May 06) series starting next week
Colourfull hermit crab. olympus C-7070 with Inon strobe.
