wow, great shot :notworth: I'm in awe! Wish I could see some of those (given that I live just marginally north of Antarctica......that's not very likely!!!)

Where did you take the picture, It is odd how the newer shell is slightly disformed like when you keep them in captivity, but no one knows why it happens. Also by the looks of the photo they are really close to the surface.

Is it my imagination or are those shells somewhat damaged and discoloured? Most pictures of Nautilus shells I've seen look smoother, these look scratched and flaky.
