This photograph represents a gathering of clownfish and was immortalised during a dive in Egypt. I am a biologist specialised in ethology and I had the opportunity to deepen the part of marine biology, a very fascinating sector also from the point of view of photography. My Nikon D90 was used with the help of a diving suit and is a very bright device that captures colour very well. It was truly a stroke of luck to be in the midst of this all-orange gathering. The sea, underwater photography truly offer different framing ideas. A gathering before embarking on their symbiosis with the sea anemone, sea anemone, in fact the clown fish find protection from larger predators such as sharks while the sea anemone stays clean. An excellent mutualism where both species benefit. In dark conditions a 35mm lens on Nikon D90 semi-automatic mode is ideal for emphasising contrast and brightness.
