Take a dive in the waters surrounding Pulau Hantu, a small island off the west coast of Singapore, and you may reemerge feeling unimpressed. Visibility around the island rarely tops three to four metres, and plentiful algae tint the water a vivid green.
For macro photographers like Katherine Lu, however, Hantu is a hidden gem. The island harbours a little-known reef that's teeming with tiny marine life – and among its most remarkable inhabitants are the local sea slugs.
"Pulau Hantu means 'Ghost Island' in Malay," Lu told WetPixel.
"For the regulars who dive there, it never ceases to amaze what we might find."
