One of my better attempts at underwater photography whilst diving. The Queen Scallop is a beautiful creature whose colours really light up with the camera flash, making the opening between the two shells seem like diamond encrusted teeth. Any slight touch or sharp movement will send the teeth chattering, opening and shutting in an attempt to swim away; the first time I saw this I could not stop laughing as the movement really is like cartoon false teeth.
