Honorable Mention Compact Macro

Miguel Ramirez

"Into the flammes"



Miguel Ramirez won a bottle of Li Lé Blue Watersports Hair Care for Divers! 


The Story: 

During a night dive on Reunion Island, I saw a huge Spanish dancer. And when I looked closer, I noticed that there was an emperor shrimp hidden in its gills!

I was happy because it's the first time I've seen this association on a dive on Reunion Island (rarer to see it than in Indonesia!).

I tried to put my camera at gill level to get the black background. The shrimp was just above her head, giving the impression that she was in the middle of flames!
