Honorable Mention Mirrorless Behavior
"Gazes from the Blue"
The story: It took me a lot of time to get this photo. The idea was very clear in my mind but many many dives were needed. These weevers generally live on sandy bottoms and usually rest on the bottom, often exposing only the eyes and the tip of the mouth waiting for something to feed. Take a picture from the top is usually quite simple, although they tend to get away as soon as they feel insecure. To get this photo I had to approach them very slowly and digging a hole to get the eye contact. Many many of this weevers escaped after I was ready to take my picture. One day I was lucky and I eventually found this conceited weaver and my efforts were paid off.
