Hi folks,

Shot in South Komodo, last November.

Epic stuff, a great example of how video can really shine. I don't know if it would be possible to make a great photograph of that guy. (Would be fun to try though)

Thanks Alex!

I agree with Steve that a still photo would be hard pressed to show this unusual nudibranch as well as this video does. Nice work.
