    Gorgeous! The anemone looks like alien! Man, I’d love to go diving with you. 🙂

      Thanks so much, Dawn. I have found that since I’ve been diving with a camera, I see so much more. I also don’t tend to cruise the reef so fast, but love to take my time and explore smaller areas. Otherwise, I would miss something like this cleaner shrimp.

  5. I completely agree with you, Cathy, that this is indeed “an amazing macro of a tiny, colorful creature”. The shrimp looks like it lives in its pajamas and the anemone’s many (cough) erect pale pink protrusions bring to mind another p-word, dare I say it (and oh, I accept that dare!), pornographic. Very intriguing image.

      I agree, V. This image could be interpreted as quite suggestive. It is one of those shots that I sometimes get while diving where I have no idea how it’s going to turn out until I get it into the editing software. Imagine my delight! And thank you for your comment. I enjoyed learning of your impressions.

      • I figure that we’ve been reading each other for so very long, Cathy, we can be as uninhibited as we want with each other. But that was my brutally honest first impression — pajamas and porn. You know the way my mind works.

    This so reminds me of Finding Nemo, one of my favorite movies. Remember the little cleaner shrimp in the fish tank?

    On a professional note, I can see this — on canvas — in a stark white room, center stage.

    Beautiful.
