Winter diving

When the water drops below 19 degrees most of our tropical visitors die from the cold but a few hardy ones sometimes survive the colder months. Neon damsels, half-moon trigger fish, even the occasional threadfin butterflyfish can be seen at this time of year.

The poor fish with what looks like a scarf to keep him warm in winter appears to have swum through a hairband, demonstrating what damage our waste and discards can do in the oceans.

The close-up of the fiddler ray is a favourite too – wouldn’t you love to see what it looks like looking through that eye?

  1. Hard to imagine how a hairband would get stuck on a bullseye John. Great photo. I’ve seen them on blind sharks and shovelnose. cheers Pete
