As the tide went out on the beach in Nusa Dua, it provided access to the life below. Our first sight was this urchin.
Urchins are usually nasty black things and very painful. We easily steered clear of many in the shallow water, but through the seaweed I saw this fellow. I have never seen anything like it and if colour indicated a warning, this must be a very dangerous urchin.
Never seen anything like it. Having a 70-200m lens on meant that I didn’t have to get too close.
One more shot, distorted by the sun cutting the water. As I got closer with the lens it moved to protect the center.
I have no idea what this is .. but it looks like a cucumber or perhaps some sort of worm.
This millipede was BIG (and fast). He disappeared in seconds.
A lot of legs …
He/she/it was right beside the crabs. Spot the 3 crabs.
Finishing off with a few beautiful color shots, peaking out from under the water.
Amazing natural colors of this anemone, an inch under the water.
It was really hard to get shots of these corals as they were in shallow water and it kept ebbing and flowing.
A moment later I caught the water coming in.
How can I not finish with a starfish.
It was fun to explore the shore.
