Sunrise this morning was dramatic…

And it was followed by clear blue sky all day 🙂

 

Looks like the season of Giant cuttlefish has started in Ishigaki!

We found over 10 of them today at Osaki.

Some of them are still shy, but some that are used to divers didn’t mind us coming this close!

 

I didn’t trim the photo… it was over 50cm in size, and really close!

 

There were lots of eggs in the coral branches.

The translucent one on the right is probably around 1-2weeks old, and you can see the baby inside.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

 

We will be going to find mantas tomorrow!
