It was cloudy and rainy today.
But sea condition is still good!!!

Today, I try to find a rare shrimp.
It’s tiny as usual, so it’s hard to find them.

So I’m so happy when I find the shrimps.

At first dive, I can find “Yakushima-kakure-ebi”.

The coral looks like flower garden.
It’s so beautiful(^^)

And we can also find Harlequin shrimp at second dive.

Both of them is popular species in Japan.

 

There are many kinds of goby now.
These goby is so cute and beautiful.

They usually live in table coral.
It’s hard to take a pics but when you can do, you can feel a sense of accomplishment, I think.

There will be strong wind tomorrow .
So, we may not be able to dive in Kushimoto area…..

I hope I could dive in Kushimoto tomorrow.

See you then(^^)/

Today, I received an unusual request.
It’s  the situation how corals live vigorously.

Sometimes, we see that situation .
It’s a spectacle of living vigorously while entwining the fishing line.

I think this view is situation that only divers can see.

In this season, we can see many kinds of sea squirt.


It looks like Panda, isn’t it??
It’s so cute(^^)

We can meet rare shrimp at last dive.

Can you notice that??
It is good at hiding usually, so it’s hard to find.

It was heavy rain yesterday but Today is sunny day.
So, we can enjoy diving!!

I go to diving  for observing goby and sea slug today.

In the first dive, we looked for some goby that lives with shrimps.

This goby is very shy, so when you get closer to them, you have to move slowly as much as you can.

As for sea slugs, we can find rare sea slugs.
Can you notice where the sea slug is?

The sea slug is good at hiding.
I’m so happy when I find out this.

By the way, this is the hidden sea slug in the picture.

Second one is this.

The eyes is very cute(^^)
It’s tiny.  The size is 2mm.

I like this form.

Of course, you can also see schools of fish.

 

Recently, the number of inquiries from overseas has increased.
I’m glad you to read my blog. We’re waiting for you to visit us.

In this year, the number of White-caudal chromis is more than usual.
The color is yellow, so it’s so beautiful!!

When you make a safety stop, you can see this situation in sunny day.

The Nudibranch that I could find is 2mm to 5mm.
Today, I was able to discover about 10 types of Nudibranch in total.

I’m so happy when I can find them.
Why don’t we look for it together?
This diving style is one of Japanese diving style.

When I search for Nudibranch, I could find out other creatures accidentally .

Today I found it.


It’s shrimp. They are good at hiding.
So, If you can meet this shrimp , you are very lucky to meet you.

Of course there are still schools of fish in other places.

A wide range of creatures, from schools of fish to small Nudibranchs, can be observed in the current sea of Kushimoto.
