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

A colorful goby models for the camera atop star coral. I used a very shallow depth of field to focus only on the goby's eyes, and to make the rest of its translucent body blur into the backgruound.
