Ocean Art 2023 - Honorable Mention Blackwater

Honorable Mention Blackwater

Kat Zhou

"Egg Release"



Kat Zhou won a 10-day dive trip aboard the Mermaid I in Bali & Komodo


The Story: 

While I was on a blackwater dive in Lembeh, Indonesia, I noticed a bright pink worm swimming by me. Since I hadn't seen a worm of this color before, I stopped to snap a few shots. It was only after I went and looked at my photos afterwards that I realized the pink coloration was due to the worm's eggs, and it was releasing them into the water column!
