North wind is strong again.

As we could not go north for Kabira manta point area, we cruised down south to Taketomi, Kuroshima and Panari islands ♪

 

At Taketomi sand point, we found a Warty Frogfish!

It was a juvenile, and less than 3cm long.

Its body color was mixture of beautiful white and orange, and and cute eyes❤️

 

At Kuroshima we found a juvenile Stingfish, only around 1cm!

I noticed it as it moved a bit, but couldn’t have found it if it didn’t – it was camouflaging good!

 

And we saw a lot more ♪

 

There was a Whitetip reef shark at Kuroshima.

It was far and deep, so this is as much as I can show you…

 

Visibility at Panari Manta Point was great, but there was no Manta today…

But I found something very unique – a HUGE Great green turban!

It was probably over 30cm wide!

 

Wind is forecasted to stay northeast tomorrow…
