Lembeh Life

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

as Mike is not here at NAD Lembeh anymore to do his cool "Your Daily Lembeh Photo" thread and i took over his Job here, i decided to start a similar thread to keep everyone updated with what's happening under water here in Lembeh.

 

To start, i wanna share this picture of a Coconut Octopus running away with his little home (f8, 1/100, ISO 160, 60mm Macro).

Right now, we are seeing here quite a lot of them mating ... anyway ... enjoy this new/old thread and come over for a beer, if you are in Lembeh.

Hi Kaj,

 

yes, the background IS blue ... it was taken on Rojos on a afternoondive, shooting up the sandy slope against the water.

 

Here another untypical Lembeh Shot, that was taken on a morning dive at Tanjung Tebal – a nice coral dive with lots of fans and whips. This mimic filefish was posing nicely for me in between the corals and made a nice subject in combination with the blue background and the nice coral.

Ok here is another one ...

As we are seeing a lot of Ghost Pipe Fish recently (of all different species), i thought i post one of this female Halimeda Ghost Pipefish with Eggs in her fin poach. The Halimeda Ghostpipefish is one of the rather rare Ghost Pipe Fish – even in Lembeh – and can be found here in Green, White or even Brown (and combinationbs of those colours). Also quite cool are the red algae that grow on them.

The next shot is taken on NAD Housereef, where a little group of Lembeh Sea Dragons (Kyonemichthys rumengani) lives on our Wreck. They stay on the upper outside of the hull and when you go in just before Dusk, you can see them letting go of the Wreck. Then the couples can be seen swimming together.

This Frogfish is one of 2 Frogfishes, that used to stay for more than half a year in the same sponge at Rojos ... they hung out there for quite a while and when i went back there last week, i found out, that they are gone. But: i found quite some juveniles of that species on the same divesite and the ones around ... so it seems like they could reproduce, which makes me really happy. In memory of these two little buggers, i want to post a portrait of one of them ...
