Marcel and Jack first planned to come and stay with us in April this year but a volcano erupting in Iceland meant that trip had to be delayed to till the summer 🙁
Marcel really enjoyed Lembeh for the fact that the conditions are so good for underwater photographers and he wanted to send through and share a couple of his favourites.
The Bigfin Reef Squid (Sepiotheutis lessoniana ) are a pretty common species, who you can often find in shallow coastal waters. During the day if you see them - they are often hanging around mooring lines, where they tend to lay their eggs. On night dives you will often encounter plenty of these squid as they like to come and play around in your torch or focus light!
Very little is known about the tiny Tiger Shrimp ( Phyllognathia ceratophthalma ) as they are very rarely seen, even here in the critter heavy waters of the Lembeh Straits! They only grow to about 2cm in lengeth. The colouring is quite distinct, so when you have found them hiding in some rubble you can’t mistake them for anything else!
