Clam Close-up by David Barrio, Spain

2560 (4).jpg

This macro-shot of an iridescent clam was taken in the Southern Red Sea, Marsa Alam, Egypt. These clams spend their lives embedded among stony corals, where they nest and grow. It took David some time to approach the clam, fearing it would sense his movements and snap shut.
