Fluorescence!  This is so exciting!  Using Nightsea filters to photograph, I discovered that the eyes of a banded coral shrimp fluoresce a vibrant green. I used a small aperture to focus only on the eyes.  The coral it's on also fluoresced.

It is always crazy to see what these little Blenny's look like under light and a macro lens. Most of them boast some amazing color and brilliant patt;erns making them an awesome subject.

I've been experimenting with wide apertures when shooting my macro images lately. Here, I focused on this spotted cleaner shrimp's eye, letting everything else in front and behind blur.
