Over the years I’ve been lucky to dive in a collection of the world’s best muck diving spot’s, regions like the Lembeh Strait, Ambon in eastern Indonesia and various parts of the Philippines offer invertebrates and oddly shaped bottom dwellers in abundance. Top of my list is surely the magnificent Nudibranch, the variation of this species is incredible with fluorescent colors, flamboyantly displayed gills and striking forms. The term Nudibranch derives from the Latin word nudi as in exposed and branch with refers to gills, there are over three thousand identified species with new findings every year. Over years of evolution nudibranchs have lost their shells and developed poisonous defensive mechanisms, in fact many species are not poisonous and only mimic other family members which sends a signal to potential prey to keep away. Here’s just a few of my favorite images that I’ve taken whilst on my travels in Indonesia.
