Mantas and nudibranchs

Dear English-speaking readers, this page is an automatic translation of an article originally written in French. I apologise for any strange sentences and funny mistakes that may have resulted. If you read French, click on the French flag below to access the original, correct text: 

Guilhem, my diving partner in Derawan (Borneo), was kind enough to send me two underwater videos he made this summer in the Celebes Sea.

On the program: nudibranches and manta rays. Remember, he was the one who had an expander problem

By the way, on the nudibranch video, when the image "dives" at the end, that's when he drinks the cup for the first time. 😯

Nudibranchs - Derawan

Manta rays - Sangalaki

A thousand thanks to Guilhem, for these images, which bring back so many good underwater memories! Ah... the ballet of the mantas, still as bewitching as ever!


On Petites Bulles d'Ailleurs

As a result, I realize that I still haven't found the time to edit my own underwater videos of manta rays in Sangalaki... I had only put online two "raw" sequences, here :

As for lovers of nudibranchs, these charming little sea slugs, a click on my tag nudibranchs will lead them to all my articles where they can find some in pictures. Otherwise, I put a nice series in this post :
→ Nudibranch Festival

These extraordinary underwater encounters seem so far away, already... And I still have so many things to tell about Derawan! Something to occupy the long winter evenings, while waiting for the next departure.
