Robin Johnson, from the society, said: "After showing a picture of the equipment he uses, David took the club on an imaginary journey to Bunaken in Indonesia where he photographed some of his favourite animals – sea turtles.

"A dozen or so pictures of turtles were shown – and it was easy to see why David is so fond of the beautiful creatures.

"After pausing in a mangrove swamp – mercifully free from crocodiles – the virtual tour went on to Lembeh – also in Indonesia.

"This is one of the very special places in the world for underwater specialists because of its unique fauna – especially sea slugs; one wonders how something that has a name that sounds so revolting could be so wonderful with such vivid colours. But other fascinating animals too including the frogfish – a fish that walks."
