    Please, allow me to plug this site, devoted to the weird and wonderful wildlife of what must surely be one of the most enchanting places to dive on earth...

    When you apply white light to these sometimes tiny creatures, the colours they present are absolutely astonishing; check out that bobtail!

    Oh my. the Crinoid Cuttlefish. I do believe I have another obsession.

    I'll vouch for that! Almost all of my favorite dive sites are in Lembeh. On one night dive we saw seven species of cephalopod!!!! :snorkel: When I've taken friends there they look down at the muck and say this is what you keep going on about??? After the dive they're convinced of its magic.
