If I remember correctly, the octopus incubation period is about 50 days... you have a good chance... get some 10:1 of the eggs! Khaw hoi chok dee!

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


hmmm 10:1, I wish! I am now absolutely broke otherwise I was very tempted to get the sigma 150mm with a diopter. That could be a lot of fun. For now I am stuck with 70-180mm with 6T diopter. May be I can steal my divebuddy's 105mm with double teleconverter :)

First time I saw bluerign octopus before I really knew what it was, I just stick my C5050 right next to it to get a picture. Now that somebody told me how poisonous it is, I am a bit wary :) Ignorance is blissed (sometimes) ;)

I like Rod Klein's photography. Even in Lembeh he still manages to produce original shots. Alex

It helps to be there weeks and months at a time. It's like living in the playboy mansion for a 15 year old hetero male. ;)
I remember in 2001 when Rod was in KBR I believe the first or second time... he didn't know a melibes from a phyllodesmium... now look where he is.

Alright, I think I might be willing to part with my left cornea for the 150mm (only need my right eye for the view finder!) or sell my hair to the wig factory. However, I have to save one kidney and one liver lobe for the D3 and housing :P

Shoosh! don't tell anyone about the market on Rachadapisek! B)

Hi Larry,

I am using a Nikon D2X in a Subal Housing and a 70-180mm Zoom Lens with a Nikon SB800 Flash in a Subal Housing.

How do you make a fish yawn? - patience and luck are the only way I have found, it took almost 40 mins to get the shot.
I gave up waiting on the red hairy frogfish - as our dives were limited to 60mins - maybe next time.

thanks for the tip, I supposed with the number of hairy frogfish they have at Hairball currently, I hope nobody else would mind if I go and squat on one of the frogfish for an hour or so ;)

Beautiful. I wish I did not see the gallery 5 days before I am leaving for Lembeh. Don't know why I would even bother taking my camera after seeing your gallery ;)

O.K...I just deleted all my images off my hard drive.

Maybe I should stick to what I'm good at...

drinking.

Nice photos.

wow, what an awe inspiring gallery!

those are among the best seahorse pics I've ever seen. that's not to discount the others which are also awesome. especially the ribbon eel (the angle is really cool) and the stargazers. It would be nice to get your EXIFs.
