Painted Critters

I was in the Lembeh Straight, and my goal was finding a mimic octopus when, by pure luck ,I bumped into this little "fella" . Initially It was all dark and very well camouflaging with the surrounding  environment, for then turning into such as beautiful colors as you can see in the picture. He was not minding about me and It posed for few shoots before I took off to look for my priority target.

It is extraordinary how The Lembeh Straight can have so many particulars and fascinating subjects.


A great day to Lembeh

Once again I had the chance this week to join the trip to Lembeh, for those that have been already with us they know we can weekly organize this fantastic trip.
This time I have been lucky as I could take few nice pictures of a Mimic Octopus as it stayed  put and let me take at least 10 shoots.

There it is what I was looking for..................a beautiful Hary Frog Fish!

Once again, Melky and I , this time with the help of Donny, went to look for the Hary frog.

Our destination was the Lembeh Strait. We Left in the morning about 7:30 by Car, got to Bitung Harbour and boarded on Abang Boat and by 9:00 we were in Air Bajo diving site looking for Mimic octopus that unfortunately we have not founded, however, we have seen two giant frog fish side by side, a small worthy frogfish, two Flamboyant cuttlefish, a huge Ornate Ghost pipe fish.  For the second Dive we have moved to Jahir 2 spot were we have heard from our friends from KBR that there was a nice Hary Frog, went down to the spot, searched for about 15 min and then founded. Good Job Melky!! We have taken Video and picture of it. It has been very exciting.

Once the dive was over we went to take a lunch at NAD dive Resort where our friends Managers Mike and Simon have kindly invited us. A great way of ending an excellent day.
