Cristina Paredes Ron Silver, besides cientific name, you also know the common name of the species?

Ron Silver Yes. Oftentimes the photographer will provide a common name which I generally will not repeat. In this case, it's a Harlequin Shrimp.

Manimal Instincs its simple beautiful

Maurice Hein One of three beautiful little Harlequin Shrimp ~1cm (Hymenocera picta) i found under a rock in Tulamben. Not the best angle unfortunately, but still happy with the picture. F18, 1/160, ISO200, Sony NEX5 with Inon S2000 strobes and diopter.

David Salmanowitz Another relic from the film days, a harlequin shrimp (Hymenocera picta) on a sea fan in Burma. If I saw this pic immediately I would think the photographer moved the shrimp for a nicer background, but I did not. There were no other dive boats in the area, so I was amazed to see this natural behavior as I pretty much always see harlequin shrimp on the sand or rocks. On the 2nd dive returned to find one of the harlequins (there was a pair) munching on a sea star leg--sadly all the polyps on the fan were retracted then and it was just brown and not screaming red.

Ken Thongpila Oh! I didn't know it has heart sharp. Love it :-) Umm, next time I should look around rather than concentrate on the photos only :-) Thanks David.

David Salmanowitz Thanks Ken. I know as macro photographers we miss a lot of what is going on around us, but we need to work the subject and have patience.
