Tiny irredescent shrimp on spotted cyphoma

Tiny irredescent shrimp on spotted cyphoma

I saw this tiny shrimp clinging to this cowry. Although I've seen a growing number of spotted cyphomas in this region, this is the first time I've observed this behaviour. It was very difficult to capture the image because the shrimp was camera shy, and it isn't easy photographing a subject that is see-through.

Update--On a recent visit to this cyphoma, I saw at least three of these tiny shrimp hanging around and on it. That has to be one clean cyphoma.

Nice shot. See-through shrimp can be a challenge (and yes, it is a cleaner shrimp). Nicely done.
