My new video of colorful marine creatures from the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia & Anilao in The Philippines.

Thank you to the dive guides who helped me find these animals. Many of them are minuscule and rare.

My new video showing footage of humpback whales.

In the winter months this southern population of whales migrates north to Tonga, where they give birth to calves and mate.

The early shots in the video are young male humpback whales. Later we see a mother and her young calf.

Last year when I was diving at Anilao in the Philippines I got some nice footage of Nembrotha chamberlaini mating. The first pair was at Red Rock and the second at Twin Rocks. It was the first trip with my Panasonic GH4 camera.

Nudibranchs have barbed penises to hold them together during mating, and the footage at the end shows the effort and twisting movement required by that pair to withdraw.

My new video taking a quick look at the near-white lacy bryozoan,  Triphyllozoon inornatum, which has been getting attention recently since divers started noticing its interesting inhabitants. This video features a bryozoan goby, a bryozoan crab, and a bryozoan snapping shrimp from the Lembeh Strait, all blending perfectly into the pale background.

While shooting macro video in the Lembeh Strait recently, my dive guide Mamang and I spotted an unusual sea slug on a stalk of green algae. Looks like it might be a new species in the Stiliger genus...

I'm delighted to announce that my 3rd DVD, Mucky Secrets - The Marine Creatures of the Lembeh Strait, is finally available at http://www.bubblevision.com/underwater-videos/Lembeh/Mucky-Secrets.htm

I worked really hard to make this as good as it could be, and I'm very happy with the result. There are interactive menus and subtitle tracks of either my narration, or the names of the species and dive sites.

Besides the prologue video and the main feature, I also found space to include my older 19-minute Lembeh video as a bonus feature.
