Orange Crush   These little soft coral crabs are so good at disguise! I was excited to find one posing on the top of the coral - as if he wanted to be sure to get the cover shot of my next calendar! Oly EM1 12-50mm at 43 Macro +5 diopter 2 strobes

The background is natural. The clear tone is given by the water column and the far away rocks. I waited >10minutes to take this shot as the little fellow was moving between the weed to hunt small crustaceans

Macro shot of a fan worm, a unique kind of worm that live... by Kerri Keet
Macro shot of a fan worm, a unique kind of worm that lives within a tube and extends their feathery tentacles to filter feed. They are quite skittish and withdraw their tentacles when they sense your presence.
