18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A small cleaner shrimp in an anemone in St. Croix.

When you find an sea anemone, it is often possible to also find a colorful cleaner shrimp living among the anemone's tentacles. As the shrimp is so small, photographing it is difficult as the anemone's tentacles tend to wave in the current and the difficult part is getting the shrimp's eyes in focus.
