Honorable Mention Blackwater

Steven Kovacs



Steven Kovacs won a 14 night dive package at White Sands Beach Resort in Lembeh

The Story: During a blackwater dive off Kona, Hawaii I was fortunate to come across a larval Lobster holding onto, not one, but four larval Acorn Worms.  These lobsters are always a delight to watch as they twist and turn in every direction while swimming and drifting out in the open ocean during their larval stage.  The Acorn Worms pictured here are believed to be one of their food sources that this youngster will likely feast on at a later time

Location:  Kona, Hawaii

Equipment Used: Nikon D500 Camera, Nikon 60mm Macro Lens, Ikelite Housing, Dual Ikelite DS160 Strobes

Camera Settings: F22, 1/250, ISO 320
