A photo of two translucent goby fish taken in MarsaAlam, Egypt have won the Overall Winner at the 2011 Underwater Photography Contest hosted by the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science, international news reported.

The photo was captured by Tobias Friedrich of Germany which was submitted under the Macro category.

“I spotted the first goby and set up my camera for a close angle. Slowly I was approaching the small fish so that it could fill out the picture a bit more. When I was ready for the shot, surprisingly a second goby came out of nowhere and placed itself on top of the first one,” Friedrich said.

The awards were given in different categories including Fish or Marine Animal Portrait, Wide Angle, Macro and Best Overall submission.

The panel of judges included husband-and-wife underwater photographers Myron and Nicole Wang, professional photographer Brian Call and marine biologist Michael Schmale of the University of Miami. Around 600 photos from 20 countries were being judge, according to reports.

The winning photos include a pygmy seahorse, Nudibranch, or Cratena peregrina, mating cuttlefish, Barracuda, frog at the surface of a lake and other sea creatures.
