Diving Gili Air, Indonesia part 3; Teluk Nara on Lombok
Short fin lion fish (another first for me)
The moment we dropped I immediately felt at home, since it reminded me to a degree of Chaweng Beach
, I do a lot of muck diving there as well! Teluk Nara has a lot more interesting creatures to offer though!
Cackatoo Waspfish (once more a first!)
There's lots of trash and if you go deeper, around 8 to 15 meters, you need really good buoyancy since otherwise you kick up the fine sand or muck and all visibility is out the window!
How about this little nudi branch, a Janolus sp, an un-described one, as of yet
Two juvenile sweet lips in one picture
On a regular base you may be able to spot and see a juvenile sweet lip and it's erratic behavior. Here at Teluk Nara's Bounty harbor, I lost track of how many I saw, at least 10, probably a few more! This picture almost had three of them in it but at the last moment the 3rd one made a u-turn just before he got in the frame.
A lovely Tawny Seahorse
Banded pipe fish, there was a nice pair of them trying to avoid my camera
A great shot of a scorpion fish, in case you can spot him
Some small cleaner shrimps
I can only repeat myself by saying how much I enjoyed the diving around the Gili Islands and I'm looking forward to start the next IDC
in mid June on Gili Air with Oceans 5
, this will give me more opportunities to dive a bit more and explore more dive sites.
