Little critter ?

23 April 2014 - 01:40 PM

Could anyone tell me what this little guy is ?

 

Common enough and seen plenty of them, this one was in about 6 meters off S/W Ireland.

Many thanks,

Night dive in Curacao

31 January 2014 - 09:01 AM

This was one of many great night dives in Curacao and we found it particularly rewarding due to the amount of octopus out on the reef most of which were sporting a fabulous array of colours, all pictures were taken with an OM-D E-M5 in Nauticam housing.

 

This colourful guy seemed to be trying to stare down the christmas tree worm:

This took us by surprise.

This very friendly tompot came straight out settled on us several times, a little worrying when it was near the face especially after seeing the teeth on Alex's images however he/she showed no aggression and sure made the dive for us.

Tompot dance, Kenmare Bay - Ireland. Well not so much of a dance it looked
more like a territorial dispute.
