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
Captain Slackbeard strikes again.
Another group of photo’s that have been here a little while (though not as long as Nicola’s. Cough!). Are those of Mr. Richard Rigby of the British International School in Jakarta.
I do have an excuse though. I run a dive centre and have to work (occasionally). Which tends to strain me brain and make me forgetful of things like sorting out and Photoshopping the hundreds of photos the Brethren leave with me.
Nice one this of a porcelain crab and a tiny, tiny anemone fish. If you know how big porcelain crabs are you’ll have an idea of the size of the fish.
NEMO! on the wall at Menjangan Island by the look of it.
Secret Bay catfish all in a row.
Crab in a feather star, no idea what its doing.
Ex-resident giant frogfish.
He spent a good few weeks on the stern mooring block for the Vicious Guppy before moving on.

Can you spot the Anchor yet?
Well can you?
Oh, for crying out loud, get your eyes checked. Its that big thing in the middle of the picture.
Eye eye Captain.
