Hey. Around 05, I spent a fair bit of time diving the great barrier Reef. In the boat library was a published book and photographs telling the story of a photographer (of some renown) and naturalist on an expedition. On return to the boat they made the skipper dump some helmet snails he had harvested. At least one landed upside down, and on subsequent dives, the photographer documented it's buddies helping to right it.
I can't find any info on the book, don't recall the name of the photographer, etc etc. If I had to guess, I'd say it was made in the 80s sometime.
Anyone familiar with the book and recall its name or the photographer, etc? It's been bothering me for years now, and I'd like to read the story again.
