Hello Everyone,
 
I put together this short video of a Nudibranch (Sea Slug) eating another Nudibranch.  It really is pretty crazy.  I didn't even know they did this.  Let me know what you think.
Hope you enjoy.

Very, very nice, Dustin. I'm going to have to show that to my kids tomorrow - they're fascinated with underwater creatures.

Through the entire video, I couldn't help but think that the slug being eaten looked a lot like a salad.
Now, if I could only get my vegan daughter to watch, and understand, scenes like this.

Underwater tripod?

Really interesting and great quality footage.  When I read that it was a 30 minute process, it made me think - what if you had to surface half-way through?  It must be really tough shooting underwater when you have to worry about how much air you have left!

Thanks...  Yes I did use an underwater tripod.  Xit404 to be exact.  With the canon 5d ii, to shoot macro it is really required.

Actually...I was starting to worry I was going to run out of air.  This was At the end of a somewhat boring dive.  I was only 15-20 feet deep, and everyone but my wife was already back on the boat.  I was kind of gettin impatient for it to finish....

Thanks for watching and your interest.
I used the xit404 tripod.  It was at the end of a dive, and was filming the marionia, by an outcropping of coral.  This was in Anilao, Philippines in March 2013, and it was almost dark when I surfaced. I was using a 100mm macro lens with my canon 5d ii.  I also used a subsee +10 wet flip on diopter on some of the shots.
