Description

Another species of Shrimp that we just don’t get this far North in Thai waters is named the Coleman Shrimp, we found these little guys hanging out in a massive patch of garbage & broken bottles on our house reef in the Philippines. The Sea Urchins seemed to really like the garbage patches, so you spent some time inspecting each one to see what mysteries were hiding on them.

On this particular Urchin we saw two Shrimp which hadn’t happened up till that point, normally we had only found a single shrimp, if there was one at all on an Urchin. So it was definitely worth trying to get a few shots of them together. What I noticed though from checking the photos of them I took is that with my macro set-up it was impossible to get both shrimp’s in focus. Maybe one day I will be able to afford a real macro set-up!

With my macro wet lenses you have an extremely short focal range, we are talking a few millimeters, get it wrong and everything is out of focus, also I do not crop my photography, many photographers will crop their photos and enlarge the subject. That is basically a dishonest way of proving you can do Macro Photography, but it become useless for printing, you lose the clarity and sharpness needed for print. So I’ve settled for this photo as my pick of the bunch, I really like the amazing range of colours you can get from the Urchin’s with the right lighting.

Here is another macro critter that likes to pretend to be sand, hint, it is not sand, it is a fish. Some Dragonet's enjoy being crazy colorful, some enjoy being very small, some just enjoy having patterns that make them blend into the sandy muck bottoms of Kata Beach. These Spotted Dragonet's are [...]

Ambon Scorpion Fish – Not Just A Seasonal Fluke

Last season at Kata Beach (Nov 2017 - May 2018) I posted some fairly interesting finds, one of which was, of course, the Ambon Scorpion Fish, something that is not meant to be in the waters around Phuket and something as far as I know, had not been found by anyone else here (bragging). We did qui [...]

Hypselodoris Pulchella Nudibranch

This Nudibranch is one of the most commonly mistaken or mis-identified Nudi's. Novice photographers who do not bother to really look up the names of their Nudi's have led to this one commonly being called 'Goniobranchus Annulatus', this is a real pain. So just for reference. The next photo is a [...]

Ghostly White Cuttlefish

I'm told by people that when Cuttlefish go bright white like this guy it is because they are scared. So I must admit taking photos of them when they are ghost white is somewhat of a "do I, don't I", moment. Now the thing is, I actually don't know if this is true or not, that they only go white when [...]
