This Week in Lembeh…… we have had Hairy Mania! One tends to wonder, why must there be a hairy version of everything? Well…. Why not? Like the minute Hairy Shrimp, usually too small to see features with the naked eye, this version of shrimp is a great challenge for the macro photographer. Often looking like nothing more than a tiny piece of fluff, our guides have a special knack for picking out these odd little critters. To join these guys we have also been seeing hairy frogfish, hairy octopus, hairy gobies, and hairy ghostpipefish.
Micheal has been excited to spot the dragon shrimp as well as a very nice green shrimp. Barbara saw her very first Starry night octopus and had a great time inspecting Pegasus sea moths. Melina had her very first taste of muck diving seeing loads of frogfish, rhinopias, and plenty of shrimp and crabs.
We have had a lot of smiles seeing stuff like: Boxer Crab, Humpback soft coral shrimp, wonderpus, marbled shrimp, stargazers, bamboo sharks, flamboyant cuttlefish, and a lot of nudi’s.
