Goniobranchus hintuanensis nudibranch . Photo is dirty because in fact this nudi loves to move on the muddy bottom that characterizes these seabeds (Vietnamese-style "muck dive" !). Taken in Nha Trang_Jan 2024

(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)
