UPY 2017 Behaviour - Highly Commended
'Views at dawn' - Pasquale Vassallo

Over the past few months, my photographic work has focused primarily on the large presence of species of jellyfish Rhizostoma pulmo, in the Gulf of Naples. In this picture a couple of crabs, Liocarcinus vernalis species, are its tenants. When the jellyfish rub the sandy seabed, the crabs jump on it and get carried to different areas.

Judge's comment: Peter Rowlands: Such a delicate image and perfectly timed yet it still tells the story of two crabs taking a chance and seeing where their lives will take them.
