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(‘◉⌓◉’)
