[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A small Pyjama slug is crawling around on a Fire sponge. I really like to have the Fire sponge as background because of its deep red colour and it swallows the strobe light really good so you more or less never have to worry about over exposure the sponge.

Hi Peter, beats the diving i done yesterday in Vagnharad, -15 and frozen, me that is. Very nice shot of the Pyjama slug its a nice subject to photo as it hardly moves, as long as your stable... Excellent detail and colours. nice work.


Very bright image, I think the slug gets a bit lost in the sponge. Still its yet another interesting shot as usual from you.

Incredibly bright and colorful subject! Very well captured with good DOF and composition.

Hi Peter
What a strang looking creature. I can see why it gets it's name. Stunningly vivid colours. Makes it a very graphic shot.
Regards Toni

You got very nice contrast, shadows and details!
Good job!
