pontohi pygmy seahorseThis week in Bunaken… From having a couple of weeks of big stuff, this week has been one of awesome macro. Candy crab, crinoid shrimp, ornate ghost pipefish, painted frogfish, harlequin shrimp, tiger mantis shrimp and several types of  pygmy seahorse (Pontohi, Severn, Bargibanti) just to name a few. The seahorse in the picture is a Pontohi pygmy seahorse which was classified as its own species just seven years ago in 2008! Growing to a maximum size of 17 mm from nose to the tip of the tail we are happy our guides have the eagle eyes required to find them. Thank you Phil Clarke for the great photo!

devil ray This week in Bunaken… What an amazing week we’ve had! The afternoon dives have really rocked this week. Michel from Canada was out on a dive on Bunaken Timor II with divemaster Sandy when a gorgeous devil ray cruised by them almost within touching distance! They were so surprised that Michel only had time to take this one photo before it was gone. We rarely see devil rays here, but it also gave us a reminder to keep an eye out in the blue. Who knows what cruises by when we have our heads in the reef looking for small stuff. Maybe rearview mirrors on the mask can be an idea….
