The SPOTTED EAGLE RAY (aetobatus narinari). What a feeling when you dive along a wall and you have a group of spotted eagle rays flying over and past you. Their elegance and majestic appearance can leave some divers breathless. They do seem curious and I had some encounters where the eagle rays would come back to check me out. I absolutely love them! 
DID YOU KNOW: 
A spotted eagle ray's pattern is unique to each individual, just like a fingerprint! .

Early ancestors of the orang-utan evolved from the African apes about 17 million years ago and spread into Asia. Today, we name smaller animals after the strong apes with orange hair and long arms: This is an orang-utan crab (Achaeus japonicus) from #RajaAmpat, #WestPapua. 🦀

The RHINOPIAS SCORPIONFISH (rhinopias eschmeyeri). This very rare species is often well decribed as the "holy grail" by many underwater photographers and it is the top attraction in these few places where the lucky ones will spot them. 
We found this strange creature motionless on the floor between pieces of hard coral - I'm proud my eyes detected its shape as, like all other scorpionfish, it was very well camouflaged. Fantastic looking fish with that grumpy facial expression! 
DID YOU KNOW: 
Rhinopias shed their outer skin layer to get rid of algae and parasites. Some do this as often as every 12 days!

#Nudibranchs are male and female at the same time: they are equipped with both egg-producing ovaries and sperm-producing testes. To decide who's the female part, they fence with their dongs. The better #fencer will be the male. Halgerda batangas - recorded at Serena, #Lembeh. 🐌

The HAWKSBILL SEA TURTLE (eretmochelys imbricata). It's beautiful to see that there are places where you will still find a big population of sea turtles. Sadly, hawksbills are a critically endagered species, mostly because of the impact of humans. In some countries, their eggs are a culinary delight and their shells are used to make ornaments, jewelery and other decorative items. If you want to help to protect these graceful animals, check out seaturtle.org! 
DID YOU KNOW: 
The hawksbill turtle can actually glow! They are the only known reptile to be bioflorescent, or in other words, to glow!

The lovely but temperamental Peacock Mantis Shrimp (Odontodactylus scyllarus) can see ten times more colors than a human eye. Also, it can punch its prey with such great speed and force that it creates underwater shockwaves - so don't go too close with your camera! This one is from Nudi Retreat, #Lembeh. 🦐

This is a Candy Crab (Hoplophrys oatesi) from #Bunaken, #NorthSulawesi. I love how they mimic the soft corals they're living on. They are only about 15mm in size and come in different colors like yellow, red and purple. 🦀

This is my #50thpost on #Instagram. I'd like to dedicate this to a special kind of #scubadiving: the #nightdive. Always a bit weird to enter the ocean in complete darkness, but it is so rewarding and cool because you always find a surprise. I recorded this small #squid around Kawe, #RajaAmpat. 🦑

Crinoids crazy in #RajaAmpat! #Crinoid is a greek derivate meaning "form of a lily". This is why they are also called sea lilies if they are attached to the bottom by a stem. Most of the time though, they are freely moving - and this is when we call them feather stars. They are widespread from shallow waters to depths of up to 9000m. Oh and their anus is located next to the mouth.🐚

Chelidonura electra - a headshield slug rather than a classic #nudibranch. Found this one on a nightdive around #KriIsland, #RajaAmpat. Its name apparently comes from the Greek goddess Electra, meaning "shining headshield slug". 🐌

The VELVET GHOST PIPEFISH (solonostomus sp). This was the first velvet ghost pipefish I got to discover! They are quite difficult to spot as these fish float nearly motionless with their mouths floating downwards over the ground. They mimic seagrass or little floating wood parts. Their shape is really fascinating and they definitely have something cute about them! Another lovely encouter with an Indonesian critter! 
DID YOU KNOW: 
Although some of these species might appear far too bright and colorful to hide, in a vibrant coral reef environment, sometimes you have to stand out just to blend in!

I've recorded this beautiful Elysia marginata #nudi at #dampierstrait, #rajaampat. This one is about 45mm in size. They belong to the clade of #heterobranchia - that means that they breathe differently than other #seaslugs and #nudibranchs . 🐌

The REEF MANTA RAY (manta alfredi). Diving over the year in places where manta rays were common, I started to get a feeling that they would hide or dissapear as soon as I entered the water. This summer, Komodo proved me wrong! A lifelong dream came true! 
This shot is actually the first ever manta ray I got to see in the wild! It's difficult to describe the emotions - euphoric but at the same time pure joy and absolute weightlessness. The reef manta started to become curious and came closer and closer. While checking us out, it almost flew over our heads. What an expereince - what a MAJESTIC animal!

DID YOU KNOW: 
Compared to all the other studied fish (around 32'000 species) manta rays have the biggest brain to body ratio!

Do you know what this is?
I think it's called a chiton. In german, it's also called #Käferschnecke - a bug snail. I was quite surprised to find this weird #heavilyarmored #mollusc in the natural rock pools of the #seychelles. They are a couple of centimeters big and feed on algae. 🐚

The FLAMBOYANT CUTTLEFISH (metasepia pfefferi). What a fascinating creature!!! It was the last dive in Komodo National Park, after around 60 minutes into the dive, on around 10 meters depth, when we spotted the flamboyant cuttlefish - the holy grail for many critter lovers. The movement, the shape, the colors - bewitching! I could have watched its movements for hours. Unfortunately it was on the end of the dive and the air inside the bottle was slowly coming to an end. Nevertheless this encounter is an unforgettable memory. 
DID YOU KNOW: 
Cuttlefish alter their internal buoyancy through the use of something called a cuttlebone, which isn't a bone but a porous internal shell. It does so by adjusting levels of gas in the forward chamber and the level of water in the rear chamber of the cuttlebone.

The FLAMBOYANT CUTTLEFISH (metasepia pfefferi). What a fascinating creature!!! It was the last dive in Komodo National Park, after around 60 minutes into the dive, on around 10 meters depth, when we spotted the flamboyant cuttlefish - the holy grail for many critter lovers. The movement, the shape, the colors - bewitching! I could have watched its movements for hours. Unfortunately it was on the end of the dive and the air inside the bottle was slowly coming to an end. Nevertheless this encounter is an unforgettable memory. DID YOU KNOW: Cuttlefish alter their internal buoyancy through the use of something called a cuttlebone, which isn't a bone but a porous internal shell. It does so by adjusting levels of gas in the forward chamber and the level of water in the rear chamber of the cuttlebone. . . . #flamboyant  #flamboyantcuttlefish  #cuttlefish  #metasepiapfefferi  #indonesia  #wonderful_indonesia  #komodo  #komodonationalpark  #canon  #canon7d  #inon  #nimarsrl  #underwaterphotography  #uwmacro  #macro  #underwatermacro  #uwphotography  #marinelife  #nature_perfection  #underwaterlife  #nature  #ocean  #scuba  #scubadiving  #plongée  #tauchen  #underwaternerdland  #fantastic_earth  #underwater_world_

The MAROON CLOWNFISH (premnas biaculeatus), also known as spine-cheecked anemonefish. That nimbly little guy made it difficult for me and the camera to get him into focus. With luck and a bit of patience I was able to get this front shot. Just a beautiful fish, which stands out from the reef with its intense orange color. 
DID YOU KNOW: 
The maroon clownfish is a hermaphrodite wherein its sex changes during its life time.

Anker's whip coral #shrimp (Pontonides ankeri) is widespread in the tropical waters of the indo-pacific, where they constantly clean their habitat. They feed on small parasites, algae and plankton as they work as housekeepers for corals and fishy passersby. I've captured this one in Bunaken.🦐

The northern part of #RajaAmpat has top quality #coralreefs to offer. That stuff wallpapers are made of. The current can boost your adrenaline a little bit, and with unbelievably dense and healthy #coral fields like these it is even harder to find the right spot should a reef hook be needed.🌞

One of the many existing AOEOLID NUDIBRANCHS (caloria indica). We saw this beauty on around 10m depth in the North of Bali. A great place to discover, observe and study aeolid nudibranchs. This species, although it was only around 2cm in size, caught my attention right away with its vibrant neon colors.
Shout-out to @christoph_troesch_underwater who helped me identify this aoelid.

DID YOU KNOW: 
Nudibranchs live for a maximum of one and a half years. Their lifespan is variable depending on food and environmental conditions like water temperature and climate.

The striated or hairy #frogfish (Antennarius striatus) is another cool #Lembeh #critter! Typical #ambushpredator - and a great #camouflage with its hairdo. They can be as small as a couple of millimeters, but this special yellow one was quite close to the maximum size of around 20 cm. 😳

The PAINTED FROGFISH (Antennarius pictus). After all the years of diving this is the first ever frogfish I've got to see! I always wanted to see one in real life, so you can imagine the excitement I felt seeing one in front of me. I usually have a good eye for tiny things, but the credit goes out to our local guide Steven which was able to spot this well hidden frogfish of around 2cm in size. 
DID YOU KNOW: 
Frog fish can change the color of their bodies to blend in with their environment. You can find them in all diffrent kinds of colors like white, yellow, beige, pink, red, purple, green or black. .

Nice #camouflage! I found this very young longsnout #flathead (Thysanophrys chiltonae) just lying in the sand near #Manado, #Indonesia, casually doing its #ambushpredator thing. It's a close relative of the #crocodilefish, a species of flatheads that can be found even in the #mediterraneansea. 🐟

The LEAF SCORPIONFISH (taenianotus triacanthus). I have seen different scorpionfish all over the world while diving. But it was not until Indonesia that I was to discover that another species of scorpionfish exist, which from above resemble a leaf or piece of paper (hence its name). We've seen them in many color variations, but that doesn't make them easy to spot as their camouflage can be very effective, blending in perfectly with the background.

DID YOU KNOW: 
This species is monotypic genus. This means it is the only species in the Taenianotus genus. .

Whilst they were pretty shy in Anilao and Raja Ampat, Bianca in the #LembehStrait is the divesite where you can see them above the #reef even in broad daylight. To me, it also seemed like they were slightly bigger than the ones I had seen before.🐠

What's the difference between a #squid and a #cuttlefish? #Squids are generally good swimmers and fast-moving predators - cuttlefish are slower, but have a very sophisticated #mimicry behavior for hunting. While squids rely on a flexible, feather-shaped structure in their bodies called the pen, cuttlefish have an internal shell: the #cuttlebone. But what else is different? I've seen this #reefsquid on a #nightdive in #lembeh. 🦑

The JUVENILE SPANISH DANCER (Hexabranchus sanguineus). We saw this one in Tulamben - the place to be in Bali to discover many small critters. Look at this beauty, doesn't it seem like it wears a night sky full of stars on its back? 
DID YOU KNOW: Spanish dancers are not only special for their flamengo-like dance, they can also grow pretty big! As most nudibranchs become no bigger than a fingernail, the spanish dancer can grow up to 40cm in length! .

As most nudibranchs become no bigger than a fingernail, the spanish dancer can grow up to 40cm in length! . . . #spanishdancer  #juvenilespanishdancer  #indonesia  #wonderful_indonesia  #tulamben  #bali  #mataharidiveresort  #canon  #canon7d  #inon  #nimarsrl  #underwaterphotography  #uwmacro  #macro  #underwatermacro  #uwphotography  #marinelife  #underwaterworld  #underwaterlife  #nature  #scuba  #scubadiving  #plongée  #tauchen  #underwaternerdland  #bg_underwater  #underwater_world_ 
The FIVE-LINED CARDINALFISH (cheilodipterus quinquelineatus). It was whilst getting closer to a clownfish that I spotted the beautifully small cardinalfish swimming calmly inside the tentacles of an anemone. The stunning purple light reflection grabbed my attention right away. 
DID YOU KNOW: 
The five-lined cardinalfish has a peacful temper. When in a group, they will establish a heirarchy, without the use of any aggression. .

This is in front of Anse de la source d'argent on #ladigue, #seychelles. Nice view really, one of those postcard beaches. I'm quite okay with this trial. 🌴

The #crownofthorns are a big problem for the #coralreefs of the #seychelles and other #tropicalislands. Ancaster planci is a 40cm wide and very robust #starfish that can eat up to 500cm2 of #corals per day, having only few natural predators. Along cyclones, they are the leading cause for the dramatic loss of corals worldwide. If necessary, the best way to remove them is to inject a simple dose of vinegar - because any chopped off arm can regrow and even multiply. ⭐️

Look who's here... The THORNY SEAHORSE (hippocampus histrix). My seahorse encounters have been quite rare. In all my dives till summer 2017 I only saw two common seahorses, one in the atlantic and one in the andaman sea. Therefore we were excited finding several seahorses troughout our dives in Indonesia. What luck to meet and observe them! 
DID YOU KNOW: Unlike any other species, the seahorse-males are the ones who become pregnant and give birth. Amazingly, while mating, the female inserts her eggs into the brood pouch of the male. .

The TRYONI NUDIBRANCH (risbecia tryoni). What an absolute beauty of an nudibranch. Once again, the colors and shapes are mesmerizing. I waited a while to observe their movements during their mating interaction.

DID YOU KNOW: The flowers coming out of the posterior end (back) of the nudibranches are actually gills, allowing them to breathe! .

The WHIP CORAL GOBY (Bryaninops yongei). You need to have a good eye to see these tiny, fast moving creatures on long coral whips. I found this one resting, while I was on a wall dive in Bunaken. I love the semi-transparent-goby and the beautiful whip in this shot. 
DID YOU KNOW: A mating pair of whip coral gobies share one coral, and often stay and mate together for years. .

The eye of the HARLEQUIN GHOST PIPEFISH (Solenostomus paradoxus). The first time I ever saw one of these was in the Andaman Sea and I was so excited. I was able to discover and observe quite a few more in Indonesia. The way a ghostfish hovers above the surface is fascinating. This is, indeed, a very special critter!

DID YOU KNOW: A female ghostpipefish can grow as twice as big as the male.

Love those! Hermit crabs don’t have a hard shell like other crabs. Their back is soft because it lacks the calcified outer layer. So they just enjoy themselves in different housings, somethimes in a quite creative way. I've seen this one around Jahir. 🦀

The JUVENILE EMPEROR ANGELFISH (Pomacanthus imperator). One of my all time favorites. The colors and designs are just insane! They are really shy, but this one made a few turns infront of me. Their colors, shape and designs change completly as they become adults! 
DID YOU KNOW: Because of the strong color and designs change, scientists believed until 1933 that adolescent and adult emperor angelfish were two complete diffrent species. .

This #algaeoctopus (Abdopus aculeatus) showed up quite unforeseen at Bianca, #Lembeh. I was happy to finally see one of those. Their ability to change skin texture with great details is amazing, in addition to the standard skillset of octopodes. A very sophisticated animal. 🐙

The MOLAS - a shipwreck from World War II that used to go around the seas as a cargo ship under the dutch flag. It's located in North Sulawesi, North of the Manado harbour. You'll find the top of the ship on 26m, going down to 38 at the bottom. Always fascinating to see how much marinelife you can find around wrecks, building an "artificial" reef.

Hide and seek! The FALSE CLOWNFISH (Amphiprion ocellaris) is also known as anemonefish. It was nice to see them in a healthy population around Indonesia. You won't believe how hard it is to get the flash, exposure and focus right; these guys move super fast!

DID YOU KNOW: Although clownfish are perceived to be "friendly", especially since the Walt Disney Film #Nemo, they are territorial animals that will fiercely defend their homes against other clownfish and other species, not belonging to their anemone. .

DID YOU KNOW: most animals underwater camouflage themselves to hide from other animals. Frogfish on the other hand use their #camouflage to catch their prey!
