14th dive - Koh Stork islandFebruary 15, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C
All throughout these dives I have learned to appreciate the smaller creatures and their amazing shapes and colors.
While I was taking a picture of a noodie, an eel crept up to me and as I moved away from the noodie my eye caught the eel a few cm's from my arm. I literally jumped about 2 meters away, those things are so creepy looking and it just seems like a bite from them will hurt for a long time. For the next couple of minutes my heart was racing and I think I used about a quarter of my air just to recover from that fright.
I don't know why they like lurking up on me when I take pictures?
