1st Place Blackwater

Keigo Kawamura

"Squid hunting"



Keigo Kawamura won a 14-night dive package at White Sands Beach Resort in Lembeh


The Story: 

I collect and photograph floating creatures at night, Bonfire style. Many squid and shrimp will gather in the underwater torch. The squid in the photo is known to be the smallest in the world, and the pygmy squid successfully preyed on a shrimp as large as its own body. Pygmy squid eat shrimp by inserting their mouths into the gaps between their shells.
