2014 Underwater Photo

Category: Macro / Close Up

Name: Yury Ivanov

Title: The Snow Queen


Phyllodesmium iriomotense. This species of nudibranchs usually lives deeper than 30 meters, in this case the depth was 32m. Main problem was to take a vertical photo, because the creature was very close to the bottom. The photo shows us the moment of feeding a creature. Bali, Tulamben. No crop.

Camera: Nikon D80


Shutter: 1/250
