I see, I see....
I darkened the background by using a small aperture and when some of the ugly seagrass still showed up in the picture, I took that out in photoshop.
These tiny shrimp live on black coral and are hard to spot. When you try to take a picture they just keep moving around the coral so it's hard to get a good shot. I quite like this one.
