On a night dive, we came across this very nice conch who was making its way across the bottom looking for food. The two eyes are on independent stalks and it has a trunk, which is clearly visible in the center of the picture, to probe for food with.
This guy was happily moving along the bottom not paying any attention to us or the camera flashes so all I needed to do was to put the camera down in front of it and take pictures as it moved closer. This is the only time I have seen one actively feeding, usually they are curled up in their shells.
