I can not resist the pleasure of showing you on video the dance of the mola-mola (and, of course, the mola-mola), after having (finally) met this big moon fish in the waters of Nusa Penida.
Mola-mola in Nusa Penida
I mounted a small video sequence full of bubbles, so you can enjoy the style and grace of the big cosmic beast. I was lucky to admire this beautiful moon fish at the end of July 2008, in the waters of Crystal Bay, in Nusa Penida (This island is located southeast of Bali and accessible by boat from Sanur or from neighboring Nusa Lembongan, where I stayed).
As for the dance of the mola-mola, it is practiced by the divers eager to share their enthusiasm to have met the beast ... A hand over the head, the other under the buttocks, to imitate the fins of the fish- Moon. Admire my underwater choreography at the end of the video! 😂
A fabulous dive, which seems far away already ... I will not be able to do the mola-mola dance again soon.
A big danke for the final images to my buddy and benevolent accomplice Peter Modrow, who filmed my bubbles and my aquatic contortions.
