It’s “Baby Time” in Lembeh … or at least this it how seemes. This morning we bumped into a lot of juvenile critters on both dives. We saw juvenile frogfish (that fit on your thumbnail), various tiny juvenile nudibranchs (that would fit under your thumbnail;) ), several baby cuttlefish (also flamboyant cuttlefish), a tiny juvenile robust ghost pipefish and a baby pinnate batfish. And even besides that … we just kept going from one critter/photo subject to the next for 75 minutes on each dive.
The diving is really good these days and very rich in critters: very uncommon for january … but we will not complain 😉
