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!

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. Let [...]

Robust Ghost Pipe Fish – Kata Beach

Great start to the Phuket diving season especially for our macro hunting. Early good weather has meant no waves and that has meant lots of opportunities for macro photography dives at Kata beach in Phuket. We decided on a Saturday morning dive, nice and early to avoid the idiotic jet ski operator [...]

For me one of the hardest of all the scorpion fish's to find is this one, the Leaf or Leafy Scorpion. Why is it so hard to find, when other species like bearded and devils literally turn up everywhere, good question, I don't know the answer, just that their rarity makes them a very exciting opportun [...]

Occasionally in underwater photography you do get a little too close to your subjects, the thrill of what you are doing can sometimes get the better of you and you think, just one more inch, just a little bit closer, most of the time, no problem, the critter will stay still, move off or give you a w [...]
