Symbiosis of Creatures
Notice the shrimps Antennae touch the Goby in order to receive warnings as the shrimp is almost blind. The shrimp maintains the house and stocks it with food for the nights and the Goby keeps the shrimp safe.

"Triple Play" - Three Juvenile Frogfish
NOTE: The fish were not touched in anyway to accomplish this shot. The black and orange were in situ. The brown was 1/2" out of frame and was gently urged with a probe touching only the sand.
