Not sure where the name Lost Lake East refers to, or whether Hama makes them up on the spur of the moment just before he gets out his whiteboard to give us the dive brief. Today’s brief: reef – as usual, lots to see – as usual, drop-off – as usual in pretty much the same contours. Sometimes you only realise just how many remarkable things you saw until you review the photos and video captured.
Begs the question: ‘Have we become too blasé about the great stuff we’re seeing here?’ Like this Peacock Rockcod clearly not happy about being photographed during his morning grooming session.
Black Spotted Puffer – also available in Yellow.
Jelly beans? It’s bubble coral.
Fusiliers: clearly what’s going off over there is more interesting than what’s going on over here!
The amazingly camouflaged Honeycomb Rockcod, though amazingly there is no honeycombed coral!
And finally, that one creature we were hoping not to see: Crown of Thorns Seastar.
