Indonesia :: Sumbawa : Satonda Island

This small island is probably more popular for its fruit bats than its diving. The sandy bottom in the sheltered bay offers a great opportunity for some muck diving and the sparse coral patches are home to a large array of critters. A keen pair of eyes may be able to spot the extremely rare clown frogfish. About an inch in size, these rather odd-shaped creatures are bright yellow with dark red patches, and are rarely seen to move. Heavily disguised, they are often overlooked or falsely identified as sponges.

Some of the other favourite macro photographers' subjects here are the scorpion leaf fish, ghost pipefish and boxer crab.
