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.
