Spotted Cleaner Shrimp

I found this Spotted Cleaner Shrimp on a Giant Anemone while diving the Ocean Encounters house reef. I noticed it right away due to its size and activity. The surge had picked up and the arms of the anemone the shrimp was planted on were all over the place. The shrimp was getting tossed around quite a bit and it kept trying to get a secure spot to hang out it. I was able to get this great shot despite the fact the shrimp was not staying in one place for any length of time.

Equipment and settings: Nikon D850 / 105mm / INON z330 / f 20 / 1/200th / ISO 125.
Location: Ocean Encounters House Reef, CuraƧao
