"I am shy"



The Story:  I took this photo during my first visit to Lembeh strait when I had just started to go a bit deeper into underwater macrophotography. Actually, I had not seen a Conch Snail before and I was fascinated by the cautious but also curious way it was looking at me. I tried to get a front shot with both eyes in focus. I had to move very carefully to not disturb the Conch Snail and finally got a shot of it looking back at me like it was trying to say ‘I AM just SHY'.
