Apo island and Dumaguete, Philippines

Green turtle and diver

I recently got back from a diving trip to Dumaguete in the Philippines so it’s time to share a few pictures

Cant remember the name of the dive site but this was taken at Apo island, just as the Green turtle (Chelonia mydas) was on the way up to the surface.  You can see how shallow it is here, 4 or 5 meters at the most.

One of the many shrimps found around Dumaguete dive sites, this one a Squat shrimp (Thor amboinensis) commonly known as  the sexy shrimp for the little dance it does 🙂
