Spotted Cleaner Shrimp in a pink tipped anemone.  I visited this little critter on three different dives and he was always extremely cooperative and curious.  Shot with a Nikonos V, 28mm lens, Aquatica tubes and 105 Speedlight.

When I saw this mantis shrimp I decided to try and entice him out of his hole and take a shot...in heavy surge. I stayed with him for about 5 minutes and finally got this. I never could get him to come all the way out.
