A busy wind is blowing over Ishigaki island, changing from south, to east, to north σ(^_^;)
Today, we went for afternoon dives at Manta point and Osaki area ☆ Sadly, no manta rays at manta city (￣◇￣;) I think there has been less of them this season… but the corals are growing surprisingly quick and beautiful♡
After the first dive, the north wind started howling so we did the second dive in calm Osaki. So many green sea turtles ☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆ some were swimming, some had squeezed themselves comfortably under a rock (￣◇￣;)
A school of batfish♪ There are many of them this season♪I hope we can get even bigger schools in this area (*^▽^*)
A spotted garden eel, a goby and it’s partner shrimp all lined up!
A mantis shrimp, so many colors☆
A young clark’s anemonefish.
We can see this frost nudibranch all year round☆
Might have been the last trip to Manta point for a while, the water temperature will probably drop another degree with this north wind Σ(‘◉⌓◉’)
