Nudibranch Hypselodoris apolegma - Kenting (17-21Feb10) C 157_2.jpg
Kenting, Taiwan -- The nudibranch Hypselodoris apolegma in a successful attempt to bridge the gap between two rocks.<br />
<br />
This is one of my favorite shots, mainly because I spent a good 15 minutes trying to get it while my dive buddies were already heading back to shore.<br />
<br />
The nudibranch tried many times to advance by bridging the gap between the two rocks, only to be dislodged again by the considerable current at the time.<br />
As it struggled on, so did I, trying to brace myself and hold the camera steady enough to obtain a decent macro shot of the mollusk's valiant efforts.<br />
In the end we both succeeded.
