13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Rockstar Shrimp

I was at the aquarium at the Atlantis resort, and I spent about 20 minutes watching hundreds of shrimp in a small tank. The environment was very dark, but the tank was illuminated by some strong LED lights. It made the shrimp look really intense. It reminded me of spotlights on a stage. The shrimp upheld a much cooler aura than their reputation claims.
