Photo Tour of the Philippines
by Tim Grollimund
The mandarin fish mating dance, a pregnant mantis shrimp, a blue ribbon eel and sea snakes are the most memorable to me. Lots of pipefish, sea horses and nudibranchs live in the seagrass, which made the hang time quite enjoyable. We also dove Apo Island two of the days we were there, then spent a week on the Atlantis Azores liveaboard at Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea.
