A day off from photo instruction and we dive with our friend Ajiex Dharma - "The King of Nudibranchs". Ajiex was testing his new camera housing and I was playing with a new camera body.
Ajiex has the incredible ability to find nudibranchs anywhere, we are sure he could find them in a roadside puddle!
Today we explored a dive site in Tulamben where a sand slope has a few hydriods and some crinoids here and there. Ajiex fins-off and is constantly pointing out tiny dots on pieces of algae and hydroids. Out comes the magnifier to view a nudibranch so small that even with a magnifier, I can only then see which end is which. Here are some of these beautiful 4mm long nudibranchs, photographed with an Olympus E-pL6 with 60mm macro lens, along with a +20 Reef Images wet lens and BluSnoot Fiber Optic snoot and one Inon Z220 strobe.
