This blog contains photos, mainly taken during diving around Perth and other parts of Western Australia, with occasional other locations thrown in. This header photograph was taken during a trip to Sipadan Island off the coast of Borneo. It shows a Grey Reef Shark disappearing into the gloom, which drops to around 600 metres deep - I was at around 30 metres!!

This Bluetail Surgeonfish was at a cleaning station - the little Cleaner Wrasse is carefully searching for parasites and dead skin fragments. Iterestingly, the fern like coral in the lower left looks very harmless but it stings like mad if you brush against it. I kept forgetting and ending up getting stung regularly. It's called Stinging Hydroids or sometime Fire Coral!!
