We have been seeing 4 babies sharks swimming in shallow water in our bay. Too bad they won’t let me take pictures of them, they ran away anytime we got close to them.
Now, what do you do when you got bitten in the bottom?
A vase shell bitten the giant clam from the back. (Here is below picture from the top)
More we got from underwater this week ….
They are rarely in the wish list of our divers. Many guides called them Pegasus fish. To me, they are likely shape a tiny dragon of the sea. I don’t see many of them here in Lembeh strait, so cross path with them underwater is unique. With their beautiful body-patterns look, perfect wings in both sides, big gleaming eyes watching us, and the long toothless jaw can form a tube-like mouth ready to suck tiny invertebrates from their burrows, list them in one of many beautiful critters here in Lembeh. They have modified pelvic fins to allow them to walk the sea bottom. Sadly their beauty lured people to sell them for aquarium.
It’s a little difficult photographing them when they are not in pair or in a group. They are calmer when they are together, you will have more chance to photograph them better. We happened to find this handsome when he was swimming alone in Sarena Patah. He was running around and only luck we got picture of him when he passed by in the front of our camera.
What are you celebrating this week? Here at KBR, it’s Sergey’s Bday, he got the surprise Bday underwater and above water.
We found this handsome when he was very little. He is growing now and was chewing something when we passed him by. Once in a while allow us to post pictures of him unedit, just the way he is.
And what’s cooking in our kitchen? It’s the night to smoke our homemade bacon.
Not so often we find the Juvenile Batavia Spadefish (Platax Batavianus), or maybe not such adorable as this one. This little one entertain us swimming from one spot to another. As if she was dancing around yet never let his eyes off us.
Now, this big guy over here dragging his jar about 10 feet when we tract him down. Who finally find the perfect ground to rest.
