Hands Up and Freeze/"Spirontocaris makarofi speciosa Urita" is the name of the shrimp. It's rare and most of the time keep moving so hard to take shots. However, I think it's very beautiful shrimp.

The Yokozuna Fish/ This fish bossing around his territory for more than two decades. Wow! I think protecting his position for more than two decades is enough to say "Yokozuna". I used my TG-3 with INON wide conversion lens and single INTOVA light.
