shortlistedShortlisted!
This little shrimp (hiding in a sea-pen) was pictured using a 105/2.8 micro + 1.4 kenko teleconverter and a +10macromate wet diopter. the use of the diopter allowed me to stay more distant and not to scare it off

almost too big for my 105micro
Southern pigmy squid (~7mm in length) I used a 105micro + kenko 1.4x and a wet 10+ diopter to achieve the shot. my setup can achieve a magnification of ~6 times the life size

Pigmy wobbegong shark eye wide open... taken using a 105micro+1.4x teleconverter and 2X macromate. it was a very tiny specimen

"pretty full mouth..." I guess that the waiting was almost over for this happy dad...
creative experiment with a friendly weedy sea-draqon. Shot during a population survey...
Fiddler ray eye close-up
A weedy seadragon. Endemic to the southern coastlines of Australia and truly beautiful to see and photograph.
