On our first dive in Putul we saw something new what I haven´t seen before. It was cow tail stingray.
It was quite big one. 
I have dived in Putul many times, but I have never seen there sharks. This time we saw two whitetip reef sharks.
Same shark before it disappeared.

Our second dive spot was Crossing. Nudibranch.
Small fishes on the reef.
Clownfish try to hide.
Some kind of sea worm.
There are always big school of fish in Crossing. One common spice is grant fishes.
I have dived in the both places many times and I know the dive spots already quite well. Anyway cow tail stingray and shark was nice surprise this time.
