Fabio Paparelli Relito Haven ... Giugno 2009

Fabio Russo a che profondità?

Fabio Paparelli quella e stata fatta, sulla scalinata cvhe dalla plancia comandi, scende sotto dovremmo essere sui 35/38 metri

Fabio Paparelli purtroppo con un solo flash .. che ancora non avevo preso il secondo!

Fabio Russo Ok è una profondità accettabile per lo spirografo, Sabella spallanzanii, ho letto Haven e pensavo ad un punto pipù profondo :)

Fabio Paparelli con il brevetto che ho, anzi che avevo a in quel periodo! potevo max -40, ora mi posso spingere un pelino più fondo ;)

Fabio Paparelli ma prima o poi conto d fare qualche foto all'elica!! chissà forse un giorno ci arrivo ;)

Fabio Russo Maya desnuda, a very rare immage of a tube worm out of the tube, Sabella spallanzanii, it was totally covered by parassitic copepod of the species Sabelliphilus elongatus, this parassite make the tube worm soffers and exit out of his home... During night dive, Nikon Coopix 8400, F 6,8 1/125, iso 50 24 mm equivalent, ikelite ds50 strobe, two selfmade led lights

Isabella Maffei you are a lucky diver , it's a so rare event! congrats Fabio great pic

João Pedro Silva This will be great to show some of my friends who didn't believe me when I said Sabella spallanzanii is a polychaete, much like earth worms.

Marco Paravella Great and intresting shot

Fabio Russo Thanks guys, Isabella, i'm not so luky if in more than 30 years of dive i saw it one more time, but i think that anything in the sea is a gift, João Pedro, use this foto for teach your friends that a fan worm is an anellid, like earthworm! and Marco, intresting is the highest compliment i can have...for me the underwater photography is a way to help understand marine life!
