New Year Diving started!

The first dive in 2020!!

A rainbow appeared again at very low position of the cloudy sky.
just like we saw exactly same type on new years day few years ago.
It's must be a lucky sign for new year!!!

we found a very rare nudyblanc (Plakobranchus ocellatus van Hasselt, 1824) on Lekuan sandy slope

Hippocampus pontohi -pigmy seahorse (black one in the middle)

pineapple sea cucumber (Thelenota ananas)

"Electric clam" in the small hole on the wall.

it's got sunny, so Lekuan reef became colourful as usual, no current, it was wonderful dive.
water temp. was 26, 27℃. it was quite cold compare to usual.
