In 2014 I headed solo to dive the Mergui Archipelago, part of which is in Myanmar. For more on that adventure, check me out on Scubaverse at http://www.scubaverse.com/diving-the-mergui-archipelago/. In some ways the trip was disappointing, but wherever one dives, there is always discovery and the thrill of excitement. Here are some of the creatures I ran into!
An anemone crab
Beautiful Bearded Scorpionfish
See the Blue Star in the urchin?
I am completely fascinated by featherstars
A glorious red Red Colony of Feather Stars
I’m always looking!
My dive master, Jurgen, took this incredible photo of a small blue eyed Scorpionfish
These are cuttle fish? You know the white cuttle boards domestic birds nibble on? This is where they get it.
A Pin Cushion Sea Star
Beautiful Parsons Rock
How many legs does this cucumber have????
A fimbriated moray eel
Cool Decorator Crab in a cave. It blends so perfectly, I only saw it when it moved.
My first Stonefish
Cuttle fish eggs…see the little babies??
Baby Boxfish…about the size of your Thumbnail!
