Coral hermit fronts Visions contest

Unterwasser Visions is nearing its final stages for 2010, and the October contest is fronted by my coral hermit crab image.

The Unterwasser Visions photo contest is open for anyone registered on the Unterwasser website (which is free).

Shot at The Marine Sanctuary off Alona Beach at Panglao Island in the Philippines, this cute little critter was awarded a 6th place in the Visions contest last year.

This year Unterwasser chose it to front the invitation for October theme, which is "My Home is my Castle".

Last year the jury wrote the following about the image:

The wonderful plasticity of the image is noteworthy, and it has great depth of field. The sharpness is especially good by the eyes which are wonderfully framed by the circular opening. A real piece of eyecandy".

Pictured is a coral hermit of the Paguritta genus, which lives in deserted crevices left behind by tube worms on the coral reefs.

Team Norway is still doing reasonably well in the overall leaderboard, holding on to second place behind Spain. The spaniards have pulled a little ahead in the last two competitions, and with just two months to go we will have a hard time beating them. But we will surely try.

Anyone registered at the Unterwasser website (which is free) can enter the competition.

Images entered before the 20th of each month will be taken under consideration by the jury - others are eligible for the peoples vote the whole month.
