More diving photos

Well, took a while to get the photos out, but here are the best of them…..  Fairly strong surge make it difficult to get a good shot, as the swell is moving you a meter or more at times! (I know, excuses excuses).


I have also found that I have become sea sick every time I have taken my camera out… coincidence???  I very rarely got sea sick before using my camera.  Oh well, tablets it is, cause I am not giving up the housing!

Starfish – possibly Nectra macrobrachia although the colour is too dark








Zoanthid of some sort, a colonial that resembles small anemones




Below are some of my favourite animals too, Nudibranchs (naked gills).  The variations in colours and shapes of these animals never ceases to amaze me!


Nudibranch – possibly Phyllidiella pustulosa







Nudibranch – Chromodoris kuiteri









Coral






Stony coral – Plesiastrea versipora








I still don't know if any of this is stock worthy though…..  I don't think it is quite what designers would be after.
