For our 30th episode we return back to where the channel began – the Something Special Dive site. Uniquely located next to the entrance to the Harbour Village marina, you will see why this is one of the most popular dive sites on Bonaire. Filmed in HDR, we delve into the macro world, for the first time, and see frogfish, juvenile French Angelfish, a rare golden juvenile Coney, a Secretary Blenny and much, much more. The close vicinity to the harbor entrance and calm waters make this a popular place for macro photographers. Large schools of fish often come into the harbor entrance to feed with their predators close behind. In this episode you will have a front row seat to this as you experience a school of Big-Eye Scad and larger predators coming up out of the deep to attack the school which we capture from below to get all the action. You will also see a large siphonophore and we will zoom in to see that is indeed a colony of hydrozoans and watch how it provides food for fish.
This episode is packed and if you like fish identification this is a super episode for you. So, pull up your arm chair and start taking notes if you can manage to not distracted by the wonder that awaits you. It is 15 minutes of pure joy. If you can, watch this video on an HDR capable television or mobile device and witness nature as it was meant to be seen.
