Story of the Shot: A Hairy Squat Lobster also known as a Fairy Lobster. Anomuran crustaceans live in almost all oceans, but this particular species lives associated with a species of sea sponge called the "Giant Barrel Sponge" (Xestospongia testudinaria). This character was about 1.25cm wide. 📸@milesbelowphotography

“Check out the holy grail of underwater.....Peacock Mantis Shrimp with eggs!!! This mama has the most advanced eyes in the animal kingdom with 3 pupils and the ability to see in ultraviolet light! She’s clutching hundreds of eggs and flees her hole if she feels threatened! It’s definitely a WOW for all of us scuba divers! I had great fun shooting this at Atlantis Dive Resorts with the Image Makers expedition!!”

Who said only white sand beaches make paradise? 🌴
This is Atlantis Dive Resort Dumaguete in Dauin. Its volcanic glittery black sand makes the place magic and truly special, don't you think?

#latergram It was stormy that day and Apo Island trip wasn't possible. The gigantic waves can be extremely dangerous by boat so we settled here. It was still fun! #dauin #dauinbeach #dauinmarinesanctuary #dauindiving

휴가 마지막날, 파도 속에서 혼신을 다해 조카들 데리고 놀았더니 온 몸이 피곤으로 만신창이 😭 이 몸으로 야간비행기 타는거 실화냐 🤦🏻‍♀️
