David Salmanowitz Shrimp w/eggs on a bubble coral. Vir philippinensis/Plerogyra sinuosa. Taken in Anilao. Nikon D700, 105mm w/Subsee+5 wet diopter, 1/125 sec, f22, ISO 200, one Inon Z-240 strobe.

Jerome Kim My favorite shrimp! Well done David! ^^

Eva Boogaard I think the eggs are flatworms

David Salmanowitz Thanks Jerome and Chris. Got lucky as this was reasonably in focus, and not all of the pics were! Need to put bifocals in my mask so I can see what is actually going on. hah hah Eva, the eggs are white and inside the shrimp, you are correct in that the brown spots are flatworms.

Evie Go David Salmanowitz! Nice shot! Same here, i think i need prescription mask... most of my shots this trip had its focus on d background.. grrrr.... A lot of wasted shots for me... :((

Chris Spence I hear Ya David and Evie! Me too! There is a place here in WA that do prescription masks!

Evie Go we're all getting there..... :(

Alistair Merrifield except for me. I already have macro eyes. :)

Ken Thongpila Nice one David :-) I wish I got this shot too... Lovely with eggs..

David Salmanowitz Ken I was trying to show you this shrimp but it went into hiding and I was unable to convince it to some out!

Alistair Merrifield There was one at mato (mado?) point in some bubble coral shallow, close to the wall.

Jerome Kim It's not really a rare one in Anilao... You can find it in several points. :)

David Salmanowitz Thanks all for the nice words. :-)

Fabio Russo the little brown spoot on tetacles of bubble coral was flath worm waminoa sp., the little shrimp, Vir philippinensis, had the eggs under di abdominal part :)

Michela Catalucci troppo bella!!!
