My slug in Researchers of water

She is in the last Researchers of water! On two columns, at the top of the page, it's my slug. A sea slug photographed this summer in Sipadan, in Malaysia (Borneo). Anthony Leydet, a specialist in marine biology, devotes a passionate article to these charming critters in the November issue.

These beasts, I've also consecrated them many ticketsIn this blog ... There are so many different species, with different colors and patterns, that sea slugs are often the favorite "macro" subject of underwater photographers.

Thanks to Anthony, I learn that these little animals are not all "nudibranchs" as I thought. In fact, they are divided into two groups: the tectibranches (with internal shell) and the nudibranchs (with the gills to bare, it is this little forelock that adorns the back of the body).

What he does not teach me, however, is that the "slug hunt" can turn into an obsession ...: lol:

Anthony and I do not know each other "in real life", but we almost met this summer on the island of Perhentian Besar in Peninsular Malaysia, where we went to the same dive center, Watercolors. A few days apart, we marveled at the same underwater world, with the same crushes on the wrecks Sugar Wreck and Fish Haven (aka "Secret Wreck" for the latter, but more secret than that, it seems).

We talked a lot and exchanged our respective impressions, on the web, over my tickets published live from the Perhentian Islands ...

So when he asked me a few weeks ago, if he could use one of my images to illustrate his article in Researchers of waterI was only too happy to send it to him! 😀

Researchers of water n ° 23The dive magazine is a free monthly, made by a team of enthusiasts. It is distributed to 20,000 copies, which can be found in paper version in 170 drop-off points in France, generally associations, trade shows and shops dedicated to underwater activities.

I invite you to discover this issue of 23 Researchers of water (November 2009) in its PDF version for free download, also, by following this link:
»Researchers of water n ° 23

On the web, the magazine comes in three forms, with the download site, a blog and a Facebook group:
»Researchers: download back issues
→ Water Researchers: the site
»Facebook - Researchers

Finally, for fans of marine biology and underwater bubbles, to visit absolutely, the site and blog of Anthony:

  1. Salut Corinne, très jolie ta photo de la limace prise en Malaisie!!! Mais apparemment, on en trouve surtout à Sipadan, parce que je ne sais pas pour toi, mais aux Perhentians on n’en a pas beaucoup vu 🙁 pourtant ce n’est pas faute d’avoir cherché!!!! Quand je pense qu’il va falloir qu’on aille à Sipadan 😀 Sinon, en toute objectivité bien sûr, je trouve le site d’Anthony Leydet tout simplement génial 😉

  2. Ta Doris is superb. Congratulations, Corinne!
    Thanks for the links with Anthony Leydet and Researchers of water. Je connaissais, sur papier. Maintenant, je peux consulter en ligne ! 😉

    In Morbihan, we - now Semaphore association - continue the fight against the dumping of contaminated vases from the Port of La Trinité-sur-Mer on the site (maximum 18m deep) between the island of Houat and Saint-Gildas de Rhuys. Ouest-France talk about it, of course. The whole file is on the blog:

    Thank you for supporting our actions and our protests to come.

  3. Great photo! The sharpness, the development of the nudibranch, I love!
    Et en tant que grande amatrice de limaces (j’en ai trouvé de nouvelles que je n’avais encore jamais vues à Raja Ampat!), je te soutiens dans cette merveilleuse obsession 😀

  4. Hi Corinne!
    Encore bravo avec ta limace, je l’ai vraiment adorée. Surtout quand on sait que tu utilises un simple petit appareil! Enfin, j’ai cru comprendre que ça risquait de changer… 🙄
    And a big thank you for your article. Yes, we missed a little on the other side of the planet, in this beautiful place whose atmosphere I still miss incredibly.
    I'll be at the Diving Salon in Paris in January, with new articles and new projects ... maybe you'll be there?
    Allez à bientôt, et encore Inch’Allah pour tes concours ! 😉

  5. @Minimouss: Quelle objectivité… 😆 Sinon, je viens de rejeter un œil à mes photos des Perhentian stockées sur mon disque dur. Verdict: y’a du nudi! Peut-être pas autant d’espèces qu’à Sipadan-Mabul, mais y’en a, je t’assure… 🙄

    @Siratus: Ah, thank you for the little name of the beast! As for the case of contaminated vases, I am sure that people who pass on this blog will be sensitive because many of them are lovers of nature and the seabed.

    @Manta: Un jour, tu vas voir, on va tomber nez à nez sous l’eau au-dessus de la même limace… 😀

    @Anthony: Je compte investir dans un boîtier digne de ce nom prochainement. Mais je suis loin d’avoir le budget pour le caisson sub qui va bien et tout le reste… Il va falloir encore patienter un peu, je m’équiperai petit à petit. Quant au Salon de la plongée, je ne sais pas si j’aurais l’occasion d’y aller, mais je te ferai signe si ça se fait! Enfin, pour cette histoire de concours, je doute fort de « gagner », vu ma modeste audience, comparée à celle des autres blogs en lice. Mais dans le fond, je ne m’en soucie pas tellement. L’essentiel, c’est que je continue à prendre plaisir à bloguer et échanger ici avec mes « visiteurs »… 😉

  6. Attends, si avec mon clic tu gagnes pas le concours, je lâche l’affaire ! Non mais ! 👿

    Good, very nice your nudibranch! I take the opportunity to make you a confession: I spent my PADI, a few weeks ago! I have never spoken about it on the blog, I'm right in my series China ... but in any case I made my first underwater bubbles, it was new for me ... I will certainly have the opportunity to dive again, I liked it !!! and most of all I think learning in the waters of Southeast Asia (in this case me it was on a small island off Tioman in Malaysia), there's worse ... 8)

  7. @Thib: Many thanks for the vote. But, you know, it would surprise me if I win the click race ... my audience is not even that of the blogs hosted by big news sites!
    Bravo pour tes premières bulles, en plus, étant à Singapour, tu auras l’occasion de replonger dans plein d’endroits fantastiques facilement accessibles pour toi. Tioman, j’avais bien aimé, et comme tu dis, y’a pire! 😉

  8. Very nice your little slug !!
    I do not know if like Thib I will one day pass the course of the first bubbles ... in addition, with your "little bubbles", it's a little like if I was there too ... so ... me, I plunge right into your blog, and it's a delight !! BIZ !!

  9. Corinne
    We also succumbed to the charms of nudibranchs, flatworms, flabellines and other small critters. The macro dives we had never done, but the virus is caught. Before we put on line, our few "modest" photos, we will buy the atlas of nudibranchs, watch carefully the sites of others (yours, of course, and that of Mantaleau) and try to list them and name them ... There is a beginning to everything! We give news soon of our 3 weeks in Papua. Our 3-month journey ends in less than a week ...
    Isabelle and Marco

  10. @ Marie-Julie: Merciiiiii !!!! 😀

    @isaetmarco: Quel beau périple que le vôtre!!! Il y a tant et tant de nudibranches, et j’en ai une telle « collec » dans mon disque dur, que j’ai renoncé depuis longtemps à tous les répertorier et les nommer. Il y a plusieurs bouquins très bien faits pour s’y retrouver. En revanche, comme j’ai une mémoire plutôt visuelle, je me souviens très bien de ceux que j’ai « déjà vus » et je suis toujours surexcitée quand je tombe sur un « inédit ». C’est aux Philippines, du côté de Dumaguete que j’ai découvert le plus de « nouvelles » espèces. Bonne fin de voyage! 😉

  11. Hello Corinne,

    Sans vouloir te mettre la pression , nous sommes probablement un grand nombre de personnes a attendre ton prochain article avec impatience 😉 …

    Facebook ne suffit pas … j’ai besoin d’une dose !!! 🙂

    thank you in advance

  12. @Will: Si si, tu as raison, faut me mettre la pression!!! 😈
    The thing is that I just went through a busy period, job question ... And I'm still working this weekend. I started a draft ticket on Derawan, which remained unfortunate, alas. Patience, patience, it will come !!!
    🙄

  13. comment je suis arrivée ici c’est un peu long enfin c’est une webstory…ça fait du bien ton blog dans le crachin rennais. Et oui suis Rennaise aussi 😉

    A +

  14. @ Berangere: Chic, a new Rennaise who passes by here! If you've arrived on my blog, it's a webstory that ends right now! Welcome to my little bubbles elsewhere, and have a good walk.
    🙄
