Our night dive was where I finally figured out how my strobe and camera worked together and I very merrily went round taking a tonne of photos. Sadly, not a great deal of them turned out well as I didn’t have the chance to linger. We had a big group with us and it was tough to stay in one spot undisturbed by other divers for a while. We revisited the black-finned snake eel from the last time, but didn’t manage to get in a better shot.
There was a pretty little juvenile raggy scorpionfish, not quite so well camouflaged amongst the coral. I spotted it easily from its eyes – they look so much like Starlight mint sweets.
Next up were the crustaceans that tend to only come out at night. Can you spot the transparent shrimp here?
Then there was this uncooperative coral crab saying “look Ma, no hands!” It refused to come out and show itself topside up.
And finally, after much frustrated snapping, I have a picture of a very shy saron shrimp. Isn’t it beautiful?
For a dive trip to a place full of coral bleaching, and with general low visibility, this trip to Redang was pretty fruitful!
