Today, I try to find a rare shrimp.

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.

So, we may not be able to dive in Kushimoto area…..

I hope I could dive in Kushimoto tomorrow.
