拳击手蟹 揭开深海生物的神秘面纱

在迈阿密的罗森斯蒂尔学院海洋与大气科学大学最近举行了一年一度的业余水下摄影比赛。得奖者分别命名为三个类别 - 广角,宏观性和海洋动物的画像。奖项也给予来自迈阿密大学的学生最好的贡献。 

In the last few years, the consumer camera market has exploded. As technology advances and prices drop, casual photographers can increasingly get their hands on nifty features previously affordable only to professionals. One example is a growing number of cameras (and camera casings) that can go underwater and come out unscathed, which has opened up a whole new world to hobbyist photogs.

The University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science recently held its annual amateur underwater photography contest. Winners were named in three categories--wide angle, macro, and marine animal portrait. Awards were also given for the best contributions from University of Miami students.

This photo, taken in Indonesia by Marchione Giacomo, won best overall photo in the contest. It shows two boxer crabs (Lybia tesselata) ready for a fight. The crabs defend themselves by carrying tiny stinging sea anemones in their claws.
