As we arrived in Lembeh, we quickly put our suitcases in our room, then we had lunch. After that we went diving, this afternoon's location is in Makawede. It's a sandy bottom. That means that there won't be much corals around us, not as much as in Bunaken anyway. After a few minutes under water, the guide seemed to be pointing at something with his stick. I looked at it and saw nothing but sand. My mum gave him the 'OK' sign, which probably meant that she saw whatever creature it was as well. So I asked him what the thing was then he touched the sand was there, then he gently touched the sand with his stick and something moved. That's when I realised that there was a flounder, in fact there were two flounders. They were so well camouflaged that I couldn't see them. I took a few pictures of it, then we moved on.
We then saw more and more flounders. Just then, I saw what looked like a stonefish but not quite a stonefish. So I pointed at it to the guide and I asked him what it was. He then wrote 'demon stinger' in my palette. It was so ugly, yet so fascinating. Then we saw this really awesome nudibranch, it was orangey yellow, I think they're long-tailed ceratosoma, but I'm not sure. I took pictures of it, it's so cool. Then we saw a short-tailed pipe fish. It's so plain ugly, it looked like moulded water hose.
Afterwards, we saw some striped catfish. There were lots and lots of them. I tried takingpictures, but they weren't very good. These catfish makes a lot of mess, I tried taking pictures, but there were so many backscatters as the sand was everywhere. Later, we saw a helmet gurnard. It looked like a giant fly from far away. As I come close towards it to take pictures, it swam away so fast. I got a few good shots though. Then we saw a few ocellated dragonet, they're so weird. Anyway, we then saw a spiny waspfish. It looked almost like a dried leaf. I took a few pictures, I liked this fish because it's so calm and doesn't move around much. Makes it easier to take pictures. FInally we saw a humpback scorpionfish, it was so beautiful; and I took lots of pictures of it.
