Planktonic gastropods in DF

#1 Post by imkap » Mon Jan 30, 2023 11:36 pm

Little marine biologist found some more gastropods (again), he was quite happy with the find as he claims some of these like the 'Heliconoides inflatus' should be found in the deeper waters only, or mostly. So he was lucky to stumble on a plankton 'swarm' in the shallow water near our house. I think he said something about 'upwelling'... There isn't much footage of these on the internet, so I feel these are a nice find. Particulary Heliconoides was in an especially good mood for acting.
Me and my wife played the music if that is of any interest (I like my new analogue synth toy, so we played around a bit :D )

Gear is: Olympus BH-2 BHS, NFK 2.5 with Sony A7S II and DPlan 4x and 10x.

I'll make this public tomorrow after he checks all the facts in the description, so here is the microbehunter.com forum exclusive premiere :D

I hope you enjoy...

Imkap,

Good stuff but the close up near the end was scaring me!

Great videos of very cool gastropods. Remind me again where you guys collect your samples.

Thank you, I'm glad you like the video :D

@Sure Squintsalot we are in Croatia...

@Dennis Mysidacea are quite cute when unmagnified, my son called them 'plus signed fishies' as they have what seems to be a plus sign when you shine a light on them.
