It was cloudy all day, and the sky was covered with thick clouds.

It is almost winter, and sunshine will be a bonus.


There have been dolphin encounters these days around Osaki and Yarabu areas, and today we saw them!

Unfortunately, they didn’t come close, so this was the best shot we got.

Spinner dolphins? There were around 10 of them.

Hope we can meet in the water someday!


Tiera Batfish of Osaki.

In addition to Longfin Batfish, we see them often these days.


Too big for macro photography?

How about these?


Expert in upside-down swimming.


Mantis Shrimp – beautiful, but don’t get too close!


As the wind was blowing from the East, Kabira area was easily accessible 🙂

This manta was swimming with a Giant Trevally.


Too big for macro photo diver?

No worries, mantas are always good!


The last weekend of November will be quite busy 🙂
