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.

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.
