In Topic: some photos from Scuba Seraya diving in Bali

Me too. Nice pics, great macro site and good resort. Only downside for me was when I was trying to photograph harlequin shrimps, I saw out of the corner of my eye the dive guide saw off the arm of a blue starfish and plonk it in front of my lens as food for the shrimps. I was mortified.

To close this one down I can advise this has now been to Dr Helen Larson and she has given an ID of I. goldmanni. It is not a 100% ID however - she says "it looks more like I.goldmanni"

Thanks to both of you. I thought both your suggestions were possibles so am no further forward unfortunately. I need to try an Istigobius expert I think. Will report back in due course

Don't have a Peli but carry the same kit as you. I usually fly out of Manchester (I see you are UK based), occasionally Heathrow and for whatever reason, usually get turned over by security. Everything out, bubble wrap off, swabbed, shoved through X-ray again. Telling them is camera gear is useless. I just expect it now and try and be patient. Bali, Manado, Sharm, Maldives etc airports all no probs.
