Pangkor Trip '07 - Day 3 - A Fireworm

This post is part of the Pangkor Trip 2007 series.
Day 1 Lumut · Approaching Pangkor Island · Havana Beach Resort · Nipah Bay Beach · Dinner
Day 2 More Hornbills · Boat Ride & Pulau Giam · White Tom Yam
Day 3 A Fireworm · Back to Lumut

The morning was spent as usual at Nipah Bay Beach. There were many water sports activities there, for example jet skiing, canoeing and banana boat ride. I tried out the banana boat ride and it was great fun (sadly, no photos). Later, somebody caught a fireworm washed up on the beach using a water bottle - and I had a chance to photograph this sea creature back at my chalet at Havana Beach Resort.

The following photo and a video show the fireworm swimming in the water bottle from a top-down perspective:

I broke off taking pictures of the fireworm for a while...
