Fun with Lights

‘Wingardium leviosa’

"Not levitated yet? Maybe a V charm."

Perhentian - Topside

Alu-Alu (Barracuda) Divers Dive Centre at Teluk Dalam.
Friendly & warm bunch of folks there.

Pinnacle of Tokong Laut (Temple of the Sea).
A beautiful dive site.

Why pay to work out at a gym to get into shape?
Here they get paid and get a bod most can only dream about.

This guy don't even need to flex the muscles for them to show.

Under the Seas of Perhentian (Part Five) - Stingers

Lionfish at the bottom near the Sugar Wreck.

Scorpionfish. Beware when you are close to the wreck. These are very well camouflaged and quite common around the wreck.

Under the Seas of Perhentian (Part Four) - Puffers

Mr. Puffy at a cleaning station.

"Don't forget the under the pects."

"Huh?! What? Me?"

Puffers aplenty at the Sugar Wreck. There was even a formation of 8 hovering just off the wreck that looked like a fleet of Intergalactic Battlecruisers.

Porcupine Puffer.

Cute box puffer.

Under the Seas of Perhentian (Part One)

Hermit crab has taken up residency in one of the many shells around the Sugar Wreck. A lot of these shells are still alive.

Little buggers is no bigger than my fingernail on my pinkie. This is a shrimp on a whip-coral.
Will ID these critters later.

Nudibranch on the Sugar Wreck.

"Oh no... he's spotted me!"

"That's it! Enough of being blinded by lightning. I'm outta here!"
