This picture of Cottis perifretum was taken in the Grote Hegge, Thorn. Here is a wreck overgrown
with freshwatermussels. In the nighttime this little fish is searching here for food. Sometimes they seem bored, it looks as if they have to yawn!

The bottom of the Oosterschelde is at several places covered with brittlestars. A lot of divers don't even look at them but the colours can be very beautiful.

Normally the Reef octopus is well camouflaged between the coral. This one had no intention to play hide and seek. A few photographers had all the time to take some pictures.

The shot was taken during a nightdive in januari. The water still very cold and not much life for a picture. My buddy started to feel cold and swim faster and faster. This left me with pictures of his fins.
