Of all the pics from my recent trip, this one stands out to me as the most interesting. I was trying out my new Nauticam Compact Macro Converter (CMC). Man, you sure do have to get close with that thing! At least when it's paired with the Oly 60mm macro. We were at Frederiksted Pier, St. Croix, USVI and found this dorid Nudibranch on the sand. I took some normal macro shots, then got down real close head on with the CMC. I had to rotate the strobe above and pointing down in order to light it at all, since the subject is almost touching the CMC. Since this Nudi has a translucent body, it basically illuminated the body from within and this is the shot I got:

For reference, this was the Nudi, not sure of species yet:

I'm very pleased with the effect, even though I had no intention of doing that. Hopefully I didn't stress the little guy pumping so much light through his body.
