New life under the sea urchin shell
"World ShootOut 2014" Macro & Super Macro Category / 3rd prize
The Yellow Pygmy Goby (Lubricogobius exiguus) grows up around 30 mm in size and guards eggs that it sticks to the inside of its hiding place. It usually lives in pairs and can be found on mucky sand substrates – living in holes, under pieces of plastic, in cans, toth paste tubes or bottles. It’s poppy yellow colour and eyes reflect strobe light in green or blue colour – makes it stand out and an attractive critter for Photographers, Videographers and normal divers alike. I have tried many shots, but this was only one shot interesting.
