The tiny crabs are colorful, with many details and two beautiful curious eyes that emerge from the shell to scrutinize the external environment like this one photographed in Goa_India_December_2023

(Canon100, 1/200,f18,iso100)
With the poor vis, everything seems brown. You can't imagine that the right lighting allows to discover otherwise invisible details. Like in this close-up of a hermit crab photographed a few mt deep in the sea of Goa_2023
(Canon100, 1/200,f14,i.100)
Marine flatworms are often very little creatures, easy to spot when diving and, if you have a good macro lens, you can well focus on them as I tried in this photo taken in Goa, India_2023
(Canon100, 1/200,f16,iso100)
Eye detail of a flathead fish found hidden under the sand during a diving in Goa. Once identified, it can be photographed without problems thanks to its peaceful nature & the belief that it will not be discovered!_2023
Flabellina rubrolineata_Goa_2023
Elysia ornata_Goa_India_Dec 2023
(Canon100,1/200,f18, iso100)
Phyllidia varicosa. Found singly or in pairs on coral and rocky reefs amongst sand and rubble areas, at depths of 1 to 30m. Widespread in the Indo-Pacific region.
This specimen measured about 5cm_Dec 2023
Coryphellina rubrolineata_2023
Chromodoris tricolor nudibranch_2023
A glass shrimp close up. Its beautiful eyes say me hello, I am here!Andamans_2023
(Canon100,1/200,f20, iso125)
Chromodoris tricolor_2023
During my dives in Goa,sometimes I came across a Flabellina & thought to myself — what an enormous one! And it turned out… it wasn't just 1. It's at times difficult to tell a singular from a mating pair as this photo.
A close up of a bright red Flabellina (with one of the two orange horns which is shorter, surely bitten by some predator), commonly found in the waters surrounding Goa_2023
(Canon100, 1/200,f20,iso200)
I admit it: I like gobies. These amazing little fish when they are illuminated they show off bright colors on their little bodies. An assortment of beautiful metallic blue spots, bright red-orange lines, bars, & others.
Another photo of this small creature that roams the rocky terrain of Havelock Is. named Bedford's Flatworm , or Persian rug. It’s beauty is not only in how it looks but also in how it moves. Beautiful evolutions!
Phidiana militaris. These nudis are covered in appendages named cerata which increase surface area for gas exchange and also to display ingested chemicals or for defence. Sophisticated and surprising nature as always!
(Canon100,1/250,f20, iso200)
Microlife on the Andamans reef.Here we see a beautiful Blenny close-up . Abundant and highly biodiverse, these species mature early, produce many offspring and they are a vital food source for other marine creatures.
"Good morning! "seems to say this little goby met at the end of my last dive in the Andamans. I take it as a goodbye and look forward to coming back here very soon_Feb 2023
This is small Hermit crab having very pretty colors on its body. It lives between the surface up to 70 meters deep. Its shell is a matter of survival, to protect its soft abdomen. I took this photo in the sea of Goa_2023
The u/w world becomes ever more fascinating when you dive slowly, look closely & appreciate the little things. Like this red Flabellina on the wreck off Goa. Here there are many tangled on the wreckage lying a few mt deep.
It has to be said there is something rather satisfying about a well framed picture of a nudibranch with the rhinophores in sharp focus! This is Chromodoris trimarginata nudibranch_ photographed in Goa_2023
There might be more than one purple nudibranchs in your area, as we see in this picture. When I photograph them, I use two strobes and macro lens 60 or 100 mm. Otherwise everything will just be blue or green!
