Today I did the 2 most amazing dives I have done in the island! Dive 19. E Beach with Sandi and Arnie
We dove the dive site Arnie’s way. We did a big circle to the right of the pipe starting wide open to the west and around and coming into the pipe to get back. To start off Arnie showed me a purple flatworm. I regret I didn’t spend more time on it with the magnifier glass. We saw a desirable Nudi and pustulous Nudis, which I snaped quiclkly for my photo blog and moved on to the good stuff. We visisted the ledges were mama white tip comes to give birth. We checked it and only a small shark was in it and not pregnant. Sandi photographed and octo, a turtle, and some cleaner stations. Pretty cool. She was after the purple wrasses. I photographed a pretty fish (ID later). I love the juvenile bi-color damselfish so I played with them for a bit. On the way back Sandi spotted a painted froggie and I could hear her screaming of joy across the water. It reminded me my dive buddies back at home in FL. I was down

to 250 psi and snapped 3 shots for proof of life and ascended to swim back. I was very exited to have seen it. It was at a frame a bit passed the end of the pipe. It was underneath the frame and it was not possible to access it to photograph. By the end of the dive I was buoyant and I needed the extra weight of my ankle weights to keep me down.
Photo notes: Photographig under surge and wide movement is a good practice and get faster with the trigger. But under those conditions I recommend a faster lens than the 105 maybe a 60mm or a 40mm.
