3rd Place Supermacro
"Intensive Care of a Mother"
Dennis won a 7 night liveaboard cruise with S/Y Palau Siren
The Story: On the 3rd day of my underwater observation with very short term period of its pregnancy (The goby). I allowed the eggs grown-up naturally by skipping dive on the 4th day and came back on the 5th day. That was the perfect day where-in you could obviously see the eggs that looks like tiny capsules. While patiently recording photos, it yawned (open its mouth) exactly while I was about to finish taking pictures. I spent 48 minutes underwater and I eventually exited the water afterwards.
