Three little bugs - Underwater Photographer of the Year - February 2021

Highly Commended in British macro category
My image of 'Three little bugs'

Each year it gets harder to do well in this completion as the standard and the number of entries gets higher. I won the British macro category in the 2015 completion with a shot of the same tiny crustacean, the amphipod (Impimedia obese), This time I felt I needed a different take. Three bugs squeezed together was my creation that caught the judges attention and good enough for Highly Commended.
