PAPUA NEW GUINEA “Tiny Stories”

Questo articolo è disponibile anche in: Italiano (Italian)

Here is the second part of the story of this unforgettable experience. After the “wide angle” images to show shapes and colours of the reef, now it’s the turn of the “macro shots”.
Portraits of the smaller animals who try not to be noticed and thanks to their size and ability to blend with the surrounding environment, they often succeed. In these moments the ability of the guide to find subjects, is more important than the competence to drive along the path. Also this time, it has been a key element.
Let’s start with the “Tiny stories” captured among corals, anemones, crinoids and algae of the Bismarck Sea.

Shrimp stories

They are tiny, often transparent, easily frightened, but sometimes also curious about everything.

Stories of other crustaceans and molluscs

Sometimes they are bigger than the previous subjects, but often they have incredible mimetic abilities.

Fish stories

……but not about common fish, I mean, not those who are used to swim here and there thanks to a robust fin on the tail.

The Bismarck Sea has shown me his heart and I left mine there…

Thanks to my buddies, the crew and the wonderful dive guides. Without their patience, care and competence, I couldn’t have taken these images.
