Description

The last dive on Kata Beach turned up something pretty interesting, or at least it became far more interesting later on while viewing the day’s snaps.

I 100% thought I was taking photos of a juvenile Filefish, but when I got home and tried to ID the type of Filefish, I was surprised to see that this fish had two very prominent Pectoral fins (fins at the bottom). Filefish don’t really have these, neither do Triggerfish, so that left us kinda wondering what the heck this guy is.

Eventually, we had to resort to fish base, and we found this Long Spined Tripod Fish, so we highly suspect this photo is of the juvenile with more prominent striping in the early stages of development.

So there you go, another totally weird and wonderful critter out there hanging around on Kata Beach for divers to find!

If you can't find a door make one, it's a favourite saying of mine I apply to photography, essentially, if you can't find interesting critters to photograph, try taking interesting photographs of critters that most people will dis-regard. The dive in question was a muck/macro dive with not much goin [...]

What do you get when you combine, clear waters, lots of sunshine, good divers & tonnes of fish! You get great photos of course, well maybe, a few things still need to come together, like the fish moving out of the way, not crashing into coral behind you and students who stay out of the backdrop.
