I promised you that one still.
Haven’t been able to go out much in the past days. We’re sitting out the tail of the third typhoon here. Luckily the worst hasn’t come here, but with rain -literally- the whole day, rough sea and very strong currents it’s not really diving weather.
My time here is running at an end… for now… But I’ll be back here soon. With camera. And better weather.
The moray eels you don’t usually see out in the open like this during the day. But at night they’ll give you a good photo op 🙂
The same with the mandarinfish. They are very cute (slightly strange as well), but really quick. And they don’t like light very much. There’s only a time window of about 30-40 minutes after sunset when they come out, after that it’s over. When you flash they hide for awhile and you have to wait for them to come out again. If you shine a big light on where they are, they won’t come out. So you have to shine a light with a very weak beak, or hold your hand over the beam. All of this makes it extremely hard to focus and take good pictures. The couple of lucky shots I got are below.
