The Ornate (Harlequin) Ghost Pipefish

I have just spend 3 very enjoyable days with a small party of our Japanese Guests, 2 of which were photographers, we had some great dives and found some wonderful subjects for them to take, the highlight was an ornate ghost pipefish.

サリーでございま~す!日本から3人のダイバーゲストと楽しい3日間を過ごしました。うち、ふたりのゲストはフォト派ダイバー。被写体としてもバッチリの生物もしっかり見れました。今回のハイライトはこれ、ornate ghost pipe fish (ニシキフウライウオ)

We had a very friendly, large cuttlefish which actually swam up to our guest then stopped at about 1 metre distance and watched us with curiousity allowing us to take some fantastic close up shots.

また、フレンドリーで大きなイカとも遭遇!この大きなイカ、ゲストのすぐそば1m付近まで近寄ってきて、そこで停止、私たちの様子を伺っていたみたい。おかげで至近距離でファンタステッィクな写真が撮れたわ!

We also saw a variety of Gobies, Morays, scorpion fish, leaf fish, nudibranch, plus 2 very large banded sea snakes, Jason held back the screams this time.

そのほかにもいろんな種類のハゼにウツボ、オコゼ、リーフフィッシュにウミウシ。。。それに大きな長いウミヘビも2匹見たの!ジェーソンもさすがにこれには驚いていたようだわね、、、フフン★
