Manado, Lembeh - Diving Hairball 1

I remember from my visit to Lembeh in '06, this site derived its name from the existence of the "resident" hairy frogfish ... the fella has since left!

Site: Hairball 1
Stats: 10.59am, 60 mins, 20.7m deep
Critters: Cockatoo waspfish (Take your pick, there are so many of them!), featherstar shrimps, juvenile lionfish :-) ... Snake eel, brown seahorse, and more.
Photographic comment: First time I shot in RAW.

Up close and personal with a Cockatoo Waspfish :-) The surge current was pushing the guy against the volcanic sandy bottom!

More little fellas!

A lone lionfish ...
