UPY 2016 Behaviour - Highly Commended
'All-you-can-eat eggs buffet' - Vania Kam

When I found this nudibranch (Favorinus tsuruganus), it was lying on the rock inside the eggs. Tried a few "normal" shots and didn't like the effect. It then starting crawling around the eggs and then back to the wall and then back to the eggs slowly and I knew I wanted it standing right in the middle as if it was looking out of the window so I waited and waited and it finally walked to the exact position where I wanted it to be. I then adjusted my strobes on both ends of the eggs so the thick layer of eggs would block the lights out creating this dramatic effect.
