Honorable Mention Blackwater

Suzan Meldonian

"Long Lure Larval Flounder"


Story Behind the Shot: Taken on a Black Water dive - we could see the hotel from where we were - over approximately 500-1000 feet. I have never seen this creature so I was totally focused trying to get this shot. Then it really started to move. They swim flat, and only occasionally sit up straight. It is very challenging to shoot them as they are as thin as a piece of paper.

Equipment Used:  Nikon D500 Camera, Nikon 60mm Macro Lens

Camera Settings: 1/250 sec, F7.1, ISO 200
