I found this little Xeno Crab sitting on a whip coral in about 25 meters depth. The crab tried to hide, but I managed to get the shot eventually. I placed my strobes left and right of the crab to get a nice black background.

Pipehorse Portrait - My first pipehorse!  This little guy is less than an inch long, and is very hard to spot with an untrained eye. The background is white from my strobes reflecting off the sand.

Did you know that Scleractinia (also stony corals or hard corals), are marine animals that build their own skeleton and that corals, like the dome and plate species, are more bulky and may only grow 0.3 to 2 cm (0.1 to 0.8 in) per year?

"Pretty In Pink" - Spotted cleaner shrimp portrait as it peers out from the tip of an anemone. When I found this anenome, I thought the pink shrimp on the pink anenome would make for nice complimentary colors.
