Mozambique, 2006

Hello, this year sedentary holidays near Nacala, in "Fim du mundo", Mozambique.
The pictures were taken in August 2006, snorkeling and diving from Fim du mundo, with an Olympus C-750 UZ and an Inon D-2000 I was using for the first time...

The identifications were only made on the basis of the photographs which is very hazardous for most of the species. As a consequence the Latin names might not be accurate. All comments, corrections are welcome.
The books used for the identification are listed: bibliography.
To improve this website, I am always interested in receiving additional photographs.

A lot of baobabs with no leaves. Arthur comment is that baboab don't often have leaves...
The beach: no corals but shrimps, lobsters, holothuries, fish, nudibranchs...

A special thanks to all the buddies I've relied on and to Fiona for her advice on underwater photography.
