Caught by one of those heavy showers that suddenly appears in this region of the Indian Ocean. She seemed happy enough anyway and after a short while the sun was dominating the scene again.

Sunday dinner with the family at the restaurant.
Praslin island. Seychelles. February 12. 2012
(photo slightly blurred. I have also cloned away an irritating white tube)
A number of paradise-like islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean…
One of the highlights for me was the diving.
It might look like an easy motive but it´s not, I promise. It´s a different ballgame to take pictures under water. The creatures you meet accept your presence up to a certain point. If you get to close they are off in a hurry. No posing from this guy.

“don´t swim to far out.. there are big sharks out there” the twins told me and smiled between them.
It was mostly a friendly joke. But I knew that six months earlier sharks had killed one french man and two weeks later an english tourist not very far from this beach.

One interesting phenomena in the Seychelles fauna is the Fruitbat or Flying Fox. Pteropus Seychellensis.
An important species for the ecosystems in the islands. The bat is big as a seagull, and you see them flying around all over also at day time. They are hunted for their meat by some of the locals.
About the catchy Halloween title…no worries, they only eat fruit and flower nectar.
