Pereclimenes colemani.
I was lucky with the timing on this one. I was going for a portrait of that Coleman shrimp  when I saw it s arm going right through its face. Time to shoot

Remora hitching a ride on a whale shark s tail.  I wonder if this one is more of a thrill seeker since he went for the craziest place instead of just hanging out on the body  or pectoral fins like his buddies

message Fantastic shot Tony!

How'd you get this? ... did you balance on one hand and shoot with the other?

message Thanks Suzan, It was actually very easy. I just steadied the camera with both hands directly over the Christmas Tree Worm, composed, and fired off like 5 or 6 shots until I was happy with the lighting etc. The Christmas tree worm was near the seafloor on a coral mound so I just kneeled on the coral rubble in front of it. I think the VR version of the Nikkor 105 helps to compose for these types of photos.
