"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.

“Come Back...!”
A yellow-headed jawfish appears to look longingly after a diver as he disappears around the Kittiwake shipwreck. I was trying for a different angle on the wreck, and a shot with some fun! 🙂
