Award-winning sea creature photos



More than 700 images were submitted for this year's underwater photography contest, put on annually by the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. Ximena Olds' photo of the headshield sea slug against a brilliant background of green seagrass took home the "best overall" award.

Fish or Marine Animal Portrait
Though this animal doesn't look like a tot, indeed the behemoth is just a babe, a juvenile sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus). The photo, taken in Dominica by Douglas Kahle of Florida took home first place in the animal portrait category.
