Nice Mike. Filmed them mating, guarding eggs, showing off but never really feeding. Enjoyed that I did.

To get that many predation shots takes a lot of time, a great understanding of behaviour and a fair helping of that magic ingredient - luck! :)

Great stuff Mike. Last time I was at Lembeh I sat by a Frogfish for nearly 6 hours and didn't get anything apart from the odd yawn!!

Cheers, Simon

Not on a single dive Nick(!), but yes I have filmed a sponge in the past before realising that it wasn't a Froggy....

Thanks, yes, it does take patience that is for sure, as well as luck, that Octopus I still haven't figured out what it pounced on..
