Wildlife Photo: Coral Scallop (Pedum spondyloidum) Okinawa

This beauty was photographed at Maeda Point in Okinawa, Japan by Shawn Miller on May 8th 2011.

 Some serious psychedelic colors are on display here and you won't catch me taking any wildlife photos like this because I just don't go underwater, unless I drop my camera in there by accident.

Shawn goes underwater to take photos so, I asked him how he took this great shot.

He used a Nikon D90 with an Ikelite underwater housing, a 105mm macro lens, an Ikelite Strobe and Camera Settings of:  f/18   1/100   ISO 200.

Shawn Miller has been a Guest Photographer here before RYUKYU GROUND GECKO 

If you enjoy his nature and wildlife photography as much as I do, have a look at his Flickr Gallery OKINAWA NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY

Amazing underwater shot, so does this mean we'll never see you in a tight wetsuit Mike? I think that's best for all concerned.
