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!!

Firstly - sorry about the quality of this shot, it's not as clear as I would have liked! Nonetheless, it's an interesting creature. The Sea Hare is a large invertebrate which has no outer shell and which feeds on seaweed and algae, They are rarely seen when diving and are sometimes found washed up on beaches. This one was spotted on a dive at the Abrolhos Islands and was around 75cm long. The long appendages on the head look like ears, making it look slightly like a hare.
