A glass shrimp close up. Its beautiful eyes say me hello, I am here!Andamans_2023
(Canon100,1/200,f20, iso125)
I admit it: I like gobies. These amazing little fish when they are illuminated they show off bright colors on their little bodies. An assortment of beautiful metallic blue spots, bright red-orange lines, bars, & others.
(Canon100,1/200,f16,i.100)
Another photo of this small creature that roams the rocky terrain of Havelock Is. named Bedford's Flatworm , or Persian rug. It’s beauty is not only in how it looks but also in how it moves. Beautiful evolutions!
(Canon100,1/250,f13,i.100)
Microlife on the Andamans reef.Here we see a beautiful Blenny close-up . Abundant and highly biodiverse, these species mature early, produce many offspring and they are a vital food source for other marine creatures.

"Good morning! "seems to say this little goby met at the end of my last dive in the Andamans. I take it as a goodbye and look forward to coming back here very soon_Feb 2023

Anemone fishes are immune to anemone's tentacles from day 1. It is a mutually beneficial relationship in which the anemone feeds from the fish dejection while the fish gets shelter from predators_Havelock Is._2023
(Canon100,1/200,f13,iso100)
A tiny fish stays on a branch of corals. Photo taken at "Aquarium dive site" of Havelock island , Andamans_2023

(Canon60, 1/200,f14,iso100)
For me nudibranchs-hunting is like collecting stamps..You always want to find new ones for your private collection. This is Thuridilla multimarginata (really very small) photographed in the Aquarium dive site of Havelock Island_Andamans-India_2023
A large chunk of coral life is tiny, lesser known, easily hidden creatures. These include both sessile (fixed in one place) and mobile reef invertebrates, as well as the itty bitty reef fish like this in the photo_2023
(Canon100,1/200,f14,iso125)
Coryphellina rubrolineata nudibranch_2023
(Canon60, 1/200,f18,iso100))
Stare long enough on a portion of the coral reef, and you are guaranteed to catch some movement, a tiny fish like these blennies & gobies abundant on these barriers_Havelock island_2023
(Canon100,1/200,f18,iso125)
These worms live inside corals where they hide from predators. Their bodies stay hidden except their colorful crowns which are feather-like appendages that resemble fir trees , giving Christmas tree their name.
(Canon60,1/200,f/13,iso100)
A squat shrimp often called sexy shrimp because of its provocative dance. Their quirky abdominal movements, often in sync with one another, are amusing to observe and can captivate divers for long underwater time!

A still goby looking at me with curiosity. The gobies usually stay within their territory in the rock but will go out and explore occasionally as in this photo taken at the Aquarium dive site _Havelock island_India_2023
