Indonesia, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, has a diversity of marine life that
provides a wealth of photographic opportunity. I am breaking Indonesia into several
different galleries, depending on the type of animal or its habitat.
These were taken in the Lembeh Strait, between Lembeh Island and the North East
corner of the mainland of Sulawesi. They have been picked as a sampling of the
colorful and interesting species in the area. Anenomefish (aka "Nemo") that shelter in
the doormat sized sea anenomes are always striking. The elusive and tiny (2 inch)
Mandarinfish that come out at dusk, just as the light is almost gone, provide a
photographic challenge. As does the incredible, almost invisible Pygmy Seahorse, 1/2
inch long and camouflaged to match the sea fan it lives on.
