105. White-banded Cleaner Shrimp


A White-banded Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis) poses for our camera on the back of a Yellowmouth Moray (Gymnothorax nudivomer). These up to 6cm/2 ¼ inch long shrimps feed of parasites and dead skin from client fishes, by doing so they contribute to the general health of the reef ecosystem.


The vignette I added in post-production darkens the shrimp’s surroundings and creates the illusion that the Shrimp is standing in the spotlight. I also thought that the music with string-like sounds matched well with the long string-like antennas of the shrimp.
