Sipadan is also one of the leading destinations for underwater photographers of various level of experience to visit. From palm-sized compact cameras to oversized DSLRs, a great deal of pictures taken are wide-angle shots, with bigger marine life and schooling fish as popular subject for photography. Little do we know, or care about the unique, bizarre and colorful critters that dwell in small holes and crevices, hiding amongst corals, sponges and anemones, waiting to be discovered. Although Mabul Island and Kapalai Island are dubbed as macro-havens and have one of the best muck-diving in the world, Sipadan shares with us, its own unique macro subjects to mesmerize us. Sipadan is an underrated macro-haven despite the abundance of small marine life. We can assure you that a critter-hunt at Sipadan is worth every minute!
Below are some pictures of macro subjects and critters you can surely see if you would pay a little bit of time and more attention to your surroundings. We hope that this blog post helps to generate some of your interest in these small marine organisms. Maybe one day soon you will be telling people how awesome the Frogfish, Leafish and Gobys are :)
