Shark !!

Aah this is the first shark I'm seeing clearly at Chumphon. I was diving with my cool english buddy Jim and we got an excellent dive spotting the major attractions of Chumphon: Shark and.... the yellow boxfish. Murphy's law was in action...I had fog in the housing and could not take a nice picture of this boxfish. This is the 2nd time I see it in Chumphon and 3rd time since I'm diving. The first time was in Aliwal Shoal, near Cathedral, it was a baby one that was as small as a thumb nail !

Second dive was Twins where I was attacked by a Titan Triggerfish that was very interested in my fins. The resident Clark's Anemonefish family lost in the middle of nowhere was also part of the album though I did not manage to take a really good shot of them.

I decided to do a nightdive as well and went with Jacqueline and Mark to White Rock. It looks like I'm lucky with the material as my light was flooded during the dive . Despite the extremely bad visibility we managed to see a big coral grouper, giant barracudas, a small cuttlefish that looked like quite worried with all the light beams and the usual suspects.

SHARK ! ok, it's far but this baby was shy and about 40m when we were going up Pink Anemonefish Yellow Boxfish..and fog in the housing AAAAAAARGH !! Yellow Boxfish..and fog in the housing AAAAAAARGH !! The aggressive Titan triggerfish. It attacked me once I turned my back Nudibranch Nudibranch Clark's Anemonefish Clark's Anemonefish White-eyed moray eel and...fog in the housing :( Jacqueline, Keiko and Marc Coral grouper

It appears OK now. (maybe a cache problem?).
The pictures were duplicated in this entry (Shark !!) and the next one (Off to the Perhentian Islands).
