Green Fiddler Crab
Sawtooth Arrow Shrimp (Tozeuma serratum). I collected one and sent it to a marine biologist for identification. She said I may have the first live photos of this species. You don't have to go to exotic locations to capture something new!
Fighting Tomtates
This tiny shrimp is only about 1/2 cm long. I found it when photographing a pair of West Indian Simnia cowries. It was in 60 feet of water, 6 miles off the coast of Mexico Beach, Florida, in the northern Gulf of Mexico.
