Hi,

First of all, sorry for my bad english. That's why i never posted (or very rarely) here, but i always have a look on your fantastic forum :)

Here are some pics from my last trip to philippines.
I was looking for the hairy shrimp that Eric Cheng talked about, and i found it 4 times in 3 dives :)

85 mm + Subsee 10 and a little bit croped.

Don't worry about your English Helene. Your images speak for themselves. :)

Where did you stay in the Philippines?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Steve,

I went to Dauin (where i saw the hairy Shrimp for the first time), then Moalboal and Malapascua.

I thought that Malapascua was only a place for tresher sharks, but it's a really fantastic place for macro too.

Hi All:

This hairy shrimp is rare, only report before in Lembeh strait, but some report from Cebu mactan island ( regularly, frequently sighted here ) by Japanese U/W photographer Mr. Yoshi's dive resort ( I forget the name , see his facebook , lots of pictures with different colors for this hairy shrimp ) .

Seems to be Club Paraiso in Cebu , they have something to do also with Nauticam .
I will not fail to contact them when coming back to Bohol in December .
