The Story: Despite the fact that I have a great attempt at solo diving, in Tulamben I always dive with Kadek Kocek, in my opinion, he is the most experienced dive guide I have met and always brings me luck. It is to him that I must say thanks for this find and for patience, because taking a good photo is not fast, sometimes it takes up to 30 minutes to wait, it takes a moment. Since I mostly shoot for my Instagram, I want to show subscribers something special. This can be a rare species or a rare moment, or it can be a very successful perspective or the interaction of animals under water. At that time, luck smiled at us and I took a photo of the Doto nudibranch which (as I later found out) was described very recently - in 2015! I am sure that the Ocean hides from us many more secrets and mysteries that should be revealed by passionate divers
