The Hairy Octopus

October 29, 2014 by Simon No Comment

One of Lembeh’s hardest to find Critters – the Hairy Octopus.  I don’t know how we’ve managed this over the last few weeks, but we have seen so many of these guys that even we all managed to go see them.  I went and shot some 5k video, Serge and Zee went to shoot still ...

Pre-Christmas Critters Update

It’s almost Christmas, the Photo Shootout has finished since over a week and it has been quite quite in the resort. But not so under water! The critters are doing extra shifts and keep delighting all guests day by day. Reason enough for a little “What is there to see right now” update. First of all ...

Epic Battle Number 2.. SMC vs MPE-65

Following up to the earlier post, this afternoon I pitched the plucky newcomer against the old master.  The Canon MP-E 65mm lens is pretty much the holy grail for macro photographers – it made me switch from Nikon to Canon years ago, and i’ve only just bought one now!  The MP-E 65mm is capable of ...

Hairy Octopus Galore

Coming back to Lembeh is always a very special thing. But these Days diving seems to be even more exceptional than i remember: In my first week of diving here we have seen now the rare Hairy Octopus for 4 days in a row. On four different dive sites and also in different color variations! ...

Which Type of Camera for Super Macro (Part 2)

Following on from my previous post, my intention was to make a small post with the pictures and the correct camera.  However it seems the post reached further than expected and has been receiving some healthy feedback. To clarify, this was never meant to be an absolute, definitive review on the best super macro technique, ...

Have sex and die – the octopus way!

When I visited Lembeh in September/October there were flamboyant cuttlefish around in numbers that I have never seen before. On more or less every dive, we saw one or more flamboyants. Blue ring octopus were not as common, but still there was hardly a day when we didn´t see them. This is very much in ...

TK delivers!

Whenever you visit the same dive area several times, some dive sites seem to consistently deliver more than others, and, correspondingly, some less than you would wish. Here in Lembeh my favorites are the Aer Bajo sites and Hairball, where many uneventful starts of dives have been turned around to glorious experiences. The different TK ...

Hairy Octopus Video

I finally got around to posting my Hairy Octopus video, we’ve seen 3 in 3 days now here in Lembeh!

Johan, Marnes and Indra shoot their first Hairy Octopus

We’ve been having fantastic diving recently, and we have been having some fun with the guys taking pictures and also annoying out yearly repeat guest, Mood. Mood has been to Lembeh every year for the last 5 years and still does not have the hairy octopus, he always missed it.  We see it when he ...
