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!!

Bullseyes are very common on the reefs around Perth and they congregate in large shoals. When approached by divers they part like curtains and close up again when you have passed. They tend to form groups in the five metres directly above the reefs and they measure 15 - 20 centimetres in length.
