First posting in this section... just when to Bunaken, Manado (Indonesia) for snokelling as it is meant to be an avian photography trip but the birds are hard to find and very high up in the canopy, thus we change our plans to snokelling around Manado on Day 4.

First time using the above camera for underwater photography and was pretty impressed by this small little camera that doesn't need casing to a depth of 3metres, in fact, I tested it easily to a depth of 5metres and totally no problem!! Very impressive waterproofing.

Very impressive pictures from this section... Just sharing some of the pictures taken by novice.

Starting with famous Nemo (clown anemone fish)



His family



Striped pufferfish



A kind of grouper? baby...



Butterfly fish



to be continued...

These are known as Golden Maroon Clowns. Known to be quite ferocious little fellas.



Possibly a juvenile Auriga Butterflyfish (aka Threadfin Butterflyfish)? :think: Can anyone verify this?



Possibly a juvenile Ornate Butterflyfish? Can anyone verify this?



Looks like a Clarkii Clownfish.

I have been snokelling for a long time, guess you have to practise a lot on staying underwater for a while, that is not to float to the top... also to reduce movement as much as possible.

Hope you are successful next time... :)
