Throwback Thursday-Shots from 2001

I had this great idea of doing a weekly Throwback Thursday post, choosing images shot in the same week of a previous year. I found a file of images from 2009 and had several photos ready to post, but then realized that none of these critters are found here in NW Bali (I was living in Grand Cayman then).

So, I had to change my criteria and just picked photos from the past of things that could be found here. So, the photos in today’s post were shot in 2001 when I was on a liveaboard in Komodo. I’ve seen all of them this month on my dives with Sea Rovers.

Usually you see just the tiger cowrie shell, but this one’s mantle is extended & it is feeding

Nudis from the archives

The wench hasn’t been diving in a few days, so had to go to the archives to get some photos to share with the brethren. These nudibranchs were shot during my 2015 dive safari in Bali.

All the spiky bits–maybe it’s a punk nudi
