This is a photo taken during the same night dive as my previous posting.

It's a shrimp but I'm nott 100% sure of the id.

Hope you like it.

Hello Peter,
Never have I done underwater photography so I'm not the one to say so much, but this looks like pretty impressive to me!
Macro work on the shrimp is well done, captured with great colours and fine details...
Someone told me shrimps operate in deep water, is that why the background is so dark?

One can never have enough respect for quality unerwater imagery! My sincerest congrats for emerging such consistent quality from the depths of sea.

Amazing underwater shot Peter. I can't imagine how difficult this would be to take.

Unbelievable sharpness, great composition.

Well done and TFS.

Hi Peter. Always nice to see some underwater shots on here. I've posted a couple of underwater shots myself recently but they don't seem to generate nearly as much interest here as insect shots for instance.

I have no idea of the species. Interestingly is it swimming mid water? I'm surprised by the lack of any other detail beside the shrimp. Most shrimps tend to hang around the bottom.

yep, we like this ! :))

it's a shrimp, member of the family Penaeidae, which includes many economically important species, such as tiger shrimp and "gambas"

I work on shrimp taxonomy, so hope to see more crab & shrimp photos of yours !



Very nice shot Peter, composition, colour and exposure is excellent. very well done.

Please recategorize: shrimp are crustaceans and not echinoderms.
