  1. This is insane, such extraordinary species, and captured so spectacularly. Top post! Posted 7 months ago
    1. Lembeh is a paradise for macro diving. Some species are not even officially assigned, for example for decorator crabs. Every day I saw new things even when diving twice the same place. The biggest shame is the amount of plastics that are in the sea in this area. And once they are at the bottom the critters live on them so you cannot remove them anymore. Posted 7 months ago
      1. Sad to hear about the plastic. The problem seems to be getting more attention and exposure nowadays, here's to hoping it makes a difference. Posted 7 months ago
        1. Yes, I think at least in some countries people is getting more conscious about the effects of plastic waste in the environment. I also hope that in the future we can see an improvement and I hope is not too late. Posted 7 months ago
