It’s finally summer, and the rainy season is over!
It is one day earlier than the recent average, and is 13 days earlier than the last year 🙂
Well, it rained a lot this year!
They say it rained three times the average last May!
The wind is blowing from the south these days, which is typical of the summer.
It is not blowing strong but somewhat limits the areas for diving.
There was a red Anemonefish living in a red anemone.
Approach slowly, and don’t disturb them…
Looks like a flute to me.
An Octopus was sticking its head out from the reef.
A Gorgeous prawn-goby.
Ovate chromis has a beautiful tail.
A swimming Nudibranch…
A Purplemask angelfish – usually very shy, but not today.
A juvenile Stout chromis is very cute.
This one was around 4cm long.
It gradually loses the beautiful and shiny blue color, and turns black as it grows…
Our guests today came back as they wanted to see Mantas, but there was no manta again…
Sorry, and hope you will be able to see it the next time!
It will be sunny tomorrow, of course!
