British Waters Macro runner-up

Swanage Sea Hare by Paul Pettitt (UK) in Swanage Pier, Dorset, UKThis picture of a sea hare was taken just before the major restoration works commenced on Swanage pier. The subject was crawling along a broken pier leg, and was perfectly positioned for me to take a picture. These creatures are often mistaken for nudibranchs, but are a different group of sea slugs. The sea hare’s colour tends to adhere closely to the colour of the weed on which it feeds … Its my quest to promote the beautiful Sea life we have here in the UK.
