16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The wedding ring

The wedding ring is an exemplar of Achaeus sp (Spider crab) who is using beautiful polyps as camouflage. It is resting over a sponge and the richness of this camouflage gives to me the impression of a ring full of bright pearls. When I saw it underwater it took my breath away.
