Robbie and Dave came to stay with in July this year and had such an awesome time that they have already booked to come back and stay with us again for two weeks in April 2011!! A true couple of Muck Diving addicts and they are bringing some more friends along to experience the wonders of the Lembeh Straits!
During their stay they particularly enjoyed night diving with Sem, their guide and Robbie managed to take some pretty cool shots of some of the critters that you see at night!!
Anemone Hermit Crabs are a staple of the Lembeh night dive and it is always fun to watch them rock and roll their way over the rubbley bottoms! I was always laugh when they fall off a rock they they were across!
Stargazers (Uranoscopus sp) are a favourite for divers to try and find on the night dives and from this picture you maybe wondering why – they are not the prettiest critter out there! But they are only seen occasionally and so this makes a sighting all the more special! Stargazers are solitary fish who you find in the sandy bottoms usually with only their eyes and mouth sticking out. It is rare to see them swimming but we witnessed this just the other day on a day dive!
Thanks again to Robbie for sending through these photographs and again we are looking forward to having you back in Lembeh next year!
If anyone else has photos from their stay in Lembeh and would like to see them including on our blog then please send them (compressed please 🙂 ) to firstname.lastname@example.org .
