Sea Lion Playing in Sardine Ball. 1st Place, Black & White. Joergen Rasmussen: «Each November, sardines aggregate off the Mexican west coast. This in turn attracts many predators. Working with a local fisherman, we searched the deep water offshore near the continental shelf, and we spotted a lonely sea lion. The sea lion was chasing sardines, and the ball was constantly changing shape as the sea lion broke it up.

Circle of Life. Honorable Mention, Compact Behavior. Andrea Michelutti: «I found this Favorinus tsuruganus, along with its eggs, on the egg ribbon of the Spanish dancer. The bright colors and intricate designs of the nudibranchs are captivating, but they hide a harsh reality. The nudibranch in the foreground is feeding of the eggs of another of its kind: The ribbon of purple eggs laid by the Spanish dancer fell prey to the Favorinus tsuruganus, which also deposited its white eggs on top.»

Ms. Elegant. Honorable Mention, Nudibranchs. Cédric Péneau: «Bornella anguilla is a very elegant nudibranch, well known for its capacity to swim like an eel, hence its name. It is not common where I live, so I was delighted to find it during a night dive, seeing it moving and raising its head as is pictured in this shot.» Photographed off Réunion Island.
