Always in their shadows. For those who dived or snorkelled in Sipadan may have seen Boers batfish swimming under turtles, why??
it is because the batfish are waiting for "food"...erm....what kind of food? just think, what comes out from the back... :-O !!!!
Say Cheeeese. Juerg's son, Peter, taking a shot of Boers batfish.
School of bumphead parrotfish, or sometimes known as the buffalo fish. One of the spectacular sight in Sipadan. If u guys happen to see them feeding, try to listen to the crunching sounds they make underwater when they feed on the corals. But where are those booming sounds when they bump their heads on corals?!?!
So of our dive guide Nina with the school of barracudas. Why does she always get the best shots?!?!?!?!
We hope to be able to get more pics tomorrow guys....CheErS !!!!
