Russel enjoyed a break from his studies earlier this year by coming to Indonesia and enjoy some awesome diving here with Two Fish Divers in North Sulawesi. He thoroughly enjoyed his time diving the walls of Bunaken and combing the sand here in the Lembeh Strait critter hunting!!
Russell really enjoyed being able to really get into Macro photography here in Lembeh and the shots that he has sent us, also show he is pretty good at it.
The Black-Finned Snake Eel (Ophichthus melanochir). They are usually found alone buried in the sand wit just their head showing. They are laying in wait for the their prey, such as small fish. You’ll often find a cleaner shrimp hanging around on their nose keeping them company!
This beautiful Cockatoo Waspfish was found at one of our true muck diving sites. They are usually found on sandy or rubble bottoms swinging happily in the water movements, mimicking rotten leaf. Found in pairs or solitary. The colour of these ranges from light to dark brown and in the case of this one white with a brown face!!
