Unfortunately, my own image (above) did not make it into the top 10 this month, but both Lasse Iversen (2nd) and Lill Haugen (3rd) scored excellent points for themselves and the team.

Team Norway scored a total of 33 points, 11 more than runners-up Spain, who are still at the top of the leaderboard with 152 points.

Overall, Norway holds second place with 138 points and took a healthy chunk out of the spaniards' lead.

Even when outside the top 10, all four team members collected points this month.

The topic of the month was 'David & Goliath', and the jury wanted pictures showing a big and a small creature together - something that can be quite hard to come by.

Lasse Iversen entered a nudibranch with a commensal shrimp shot in Lembeh Strait, and Lill Haugens amphipod on a comb jelly also caught the eye (and the points) of the jury.

My image shows a Bryers nut crab (Ebalia crankii) with a european lobster (Hommarus gammarus) larvae at its back.

Team Norway consists of Bjørnar Nygård, Lasse Iversen, Lill Haugen and myself. Please click on the names to visit their respective homepages.
