143. A female Cuapetes Shrimp (Cuapetes tenuipes) guards her eggs

Subject: A female Cuapetes Shrimp (Cuapetes tenuipes) keeps and guards her eggs on the underside of her body. These nearly transparent shrimps are common and widespread in the Indo-Pacific region and are not associated with other organisms.

Technique: To capture extreme little subjects on film (the shrimp’s eggs are about the same size as the grains of sand) the use of a macro lens is required. In most cases a diopter is used as it is easily fitted on your camera’s existing lens (inside the housing) or flipped onto you camera’s dome (wet lens).
