This Sea spider really was in my wish-list! And I wanted to see more details on his "face" or some behavior moments. Here I took the shot when he was eating holding his food with his claws.

"The Ambassador" Sea snakes are similar to divers, they rise to the surface and go below back to the reefs. As divers we have to be ambassadors for the ocean, spread awareness and inform everyone about the oceans. This image symbolizes that.

If you could coax a Cuttlefish up into the shallows of the reef top you could get this shot,. the setting are the same, lens. etc. This took two images and some layering though
