3rd Place Macro

"Clownfish and Its Babies"



Dennis Corpuz won a 6-day full board accommodation and dive package with Tawali Leisure & Dive Resort in Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea!


The Story: 

I noticed this clownfish kept coming back to the same spot, and when I looked closely I found there were babies. The parent clownfish nurtured them using its pelvic fins. I used Backscatter miniflash with a snoot just to highlight the eggs and the face of the clownfish.
