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!!

The Common Bullseye is, as its name suggests, extremely common on the offshore reefs around Perth. They normally congregate in large shoals and just hang in the water together in caves and hollows in the reefs. They lazily move when a diver approaches and reform behind when the way is clear - they never seem topanic or hurry!! This one was on its own and allowed me to get a close-up shot.
