[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hippopus hippopus, one of the larger species of Bivalvia, prefers barrier reefs and tropical atolls of the Pacific. Larger species of the family Tridacnidae (to which Hippopus belong) may be dangerous to snorkelers who can accidentally step inside the open shells, causing the bivalve to close like a trap.
This small, cleaned specimen was photographed on a dark BG using available light only.

Hi Mehmet, this is a kind of shot that is not seen often here. This bivalve is in excellent condition with incredible colour.

I was maybe a little concerned seeing it like this, cleaned up, on dry land. I see though from your bio that you handle these professionally.

Thanks, John

Hocam nefis renkler ve çok ilgin bir kabuk. Paylaşımınız içi teşekkürler. Mustafa

Hello Mehmet,
This is a fine view of this fascinating shell. Excellent DOF and fine details and colours. Have you taken any pictures of live molluscs under water as well?
TFS and regards, Ulla

Merhaba Mehmet,
a very beautiful macro shot of this shell in your fantastic collection, very good sharpness and splendid contrast of colours in a nice well balanced composition
Happy New Year to you and your family
Ciao Maurizio
