Richard Rigby’s Really Good, mainly Menjangan Island,Photos

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.
I digress.
Anemone with crab and tiny fishy
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.
This time a normal Nemo as opposed to Nasty Nemo
NEMO! on the wall at Menjangan Island by the look of it.
Catfish, catfish and more catfish
Secret Bay catfish all in a row.
Feathered crab on the menu tonight
Crab in a feather star, no idea what its doing.
A HUGE pink frogfish
Ex-resident giant frogfish.
He spent a good few weeks on the stern mooring block for the Vicious Guppy before moving on.

Spot the anchor
Anchor Wreck at Menjangan Island.
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.
Never trust the smile of a crocodile(fish)

Lee, phyllis & Gary’s, Secret Bay Memories

The Sea Rovers Brethren’s ranks continue to swell with the addition of Lee, Phyllis and Gary our American affiliates.

Below are just a small taste of some of the many, many underwater photograph that Lee took during their time here.

This time I chose some of his Secret Bay photo’s as I liked them the best.

Lee The - a self portrait

First a Self Portrait of the Photographer himself Mr Lee resplendent with his HydroOptics mask. Very dashing Mr Lee.

Gobby on a starfish, secret bay, Bali

Nice little Gobby takes a ride on a passing starfish. Probably be faster to swim, but hey, who’s in a hurry. This is Bali after all.

Yellow Frogfish, secret bay, Bali

Yellow frogfish striking a dramatic pose.

Folded NudiBranch, secret bay, Bali

Often seen at Secret Bay and nicely photoed by Mr Lee. A folded nudibranch.
Amazing what you can accomplish with origami and some sea lettuce.

Rough landing, Cuttlefish, secret bay, Bali

This Cuttlefish seems to have crash-landed in the sand, must have mucked up his landing.

Eye eye Mr Cuttlefish, secret bay, Bali

Aye Eye Mr Lee!

Cool Catfish, secret bay, Bali
Cool Catfish finish off this collection of interesting images from Lee. We look forward to seeing many more on your next trip out.

By the way Phyllis, the Saga of the Skolian Empire books that you left here are brilliant, hence its taken me so long to get round to going through the hundreds of photos you left to narrow down to these.

More Secrets From Secret Bay

Another day of cold water (25C brrr..) and mucky vis in Secret Bay with dive buddy Kimmy More. No Frogfish this time but I did get a classic sea snake picture as it headed for the surface to get a breathe of fresh air. Mmm maybe I should wash my wetsuit 🙂
