Really nice. Especially the Cuttlefish. I like the egg mass(?) too. I've done a little bit of underwater photography but I cringe at the thought of bringing one of my high end Nikons into salt water, "water proof" case not withstanding. I do use a purpose built under water camera system but not enough practice/experience to call myself an underwater photographer. What is the first one, crab maybe?

Very cool! What are #2 and #3?

We occasionally had cuttlefish when I volunteered at the National Zoo (Invertebrate Exhibit) in the late 1980's. Made me want to spend several hundred dollars for a salt water aquarium.

The first one is a candy crab
100mm canon lens. Was only the second time I had used that set up. Indonesia is without a doubt my favorite dive destination to date, with a Philippines a close second.

I will post some wide angle shots from that trip shortly...

Hi-
Thanks!
#2 is the doto greenamyeri nudibranch. it was referred to as the donut nudibranch...
#3 is called a whip coral shrimp

sometimes they are extremely hard to see as they are masters of camouflage...

It is nice to see so many responses. I have failed to put anything up because I was not sure anyone watched this site except me. I apologize, I will start participating.

If you post in the underwater section you won't get much response. Post in the photo gallery and you will reach a larger audience.

Thanks for the ID.
I've never dove Indonesia. Several hundred dives in the Philippines and Guam. Three years ago I finally dove the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Surprisingly, maybe for some people, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba has some very good diving.
