The small islands that surround Nosy Be have a beautiful coral reef. It is certainly not the Egyptian or Maldivian, but many colorful fish can be observed. But it seemed right to pay homage to this beautiful giant Tridacna, the largest existing bivalve mollusc, whose valves, crossed by wide longitudinal ribs, can reach a meter and a half in length, while the total weight can reach 300 kg. I was happy to still be able to use my old underwater camera which still works great. Photo taken on the barrier of the island of Nosy Tanikely. Giant clams are the members of the clam genus Tridacna that are the largest living bivalve mollusks. There are actually several species of "giant clams" in the genus Tridacna, which are often misidentified for Tridacna gigas, the most commonly intended species referred to as “the giant clam”. More info on wikipedia.

No doubt a fantastic clear water around the islands....Lovely colors and good details.
Le sujet est bien cadré. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails Tridacne géant. La lumière met en valeur la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
Ciao Luciano, magnifica creatura in una fantastica foto, stupefacente la trasparenza dell'acqua, ottimi dettagli, gran colori naturali e splendida nitidezza, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
