Hey, you there too, Penti... :)
I realize it's been a long way since your blue period (private joke ), you're building up a very consistent portfolio.
I happen to remember quite some of these pics, even wonder whether I wasn't nearby for the morays and the porcelain crabs.
I think the most efficient way to advertise la Renyon would be to upload those humpback whale shots. I'll bet the Wetpixelers would come as flocks... :clapping:

I remember they would rather call it "Seamoth", at least in the Phils or in Indo.

Cheers
L.

(PS : my next -and probably last- RUN business trip perhaps on the last week of august, still time for the whales, I hope... In the mean time New Caledonia and Vanuatu, that'll be in 15 days now :) )



Hi Luko,

yes one or 2 pics were taken diving with you... Definitely the one with the 2 clownfish, I'm not sure about any other...

I'll probably post some photos of the humpbacks from last year, I hope the season will be good this year too so that I can get clearer ones with a nicer blue (you know I do like blue :P ). It will be right in the middle of the season when you come back, I hope you'll be luckier with the weather and sea condition this time...

About the little weird fish, apparently it can be called seamoth as well as "short" or "little" dragonfish : fishbase

See you around !

Thank you Cpix and Aqua_soul.

From the places I have visited, Reunion remains my favourite, stunning island!!! with so much on offer.

I would be most interesting to hear more on the other places you have mentioned.

Also if you don't mind I would like to pm/e-mail you abit about Reunion.



I'm glad you enjoyed our little island. It's true that there is a lot to do (diving, hiking, paragliding, surfing, canyoning, mountainbiking, horseriding, beachgoing) and a huge variety of landscapes here. Pity so few people speak English though, quite a handicap for tourism and the main reason (with European prices too) why we don't see a lot of international tourists here. Unlike our "sister island" Mauritius very few european or american people know about it as well, when I was in SA most South Africans did though.

Feel free to ask me any question you like, you're welcome.

1) the first leave fish, is it busy eating something or what are the things hanging out of its mouth?



Yes, I think it's eating a shrimp.

2) what type of fish is the one in the photo below the egg laying nudi?


It's a small dragonfish, Eurypegasus draconis. A very weird fish with its armoured body, its wings and its flattened trump. It's very rare here, this one is the only one that's ever been seen in Reunion (a lot of people did see it though because it's very sedentary).
