  1. Fantastic shot! You can still see some of the sand on its head. Posted 6 years ago
    1. Thanks, Ferdy :)
      Its one of the more difficult shot to get as they don't stay in the water column too much, just a few seconds before they settle to the sandy bottom to bury themselves again.
      And yes, it still has sands on it :D
