Information Technology Officer, Brett Wilks, took this photo of Antarctic krill during training for his first deployment to Casey research station in late 2017. The krill were in a small display tank at head office. Brett took several shots with his Canon 6D with 50 mm macro lens. To reduce the blur on the krills’ fast-moving legs, this image was taken at ISO 8000, 1/1600 s, with some post-processing noise reduction in Adobe Lightroom.
