UPY  Behaviour - Third
'Valet service' - Cathy Lewis

We spent a lot of time shore diving a busy cleaning station at around 23m, where this emperor angelfish was a frequent visitor. I wanted to use it as a colourful, graphic canvas on which to capture the cleaning behaviour of the Lysmata shrimp.

Judge's comment: Martin Edge: This image was a strong favourite with all the judges. It has a wonderful sense, not only abstract and art but of behaviour also. Excellent 'peak of the action' with the subject occupying the dark tones of the fish. The balance of the composition and general weight of the shot, I find outstanding.
