The Story: This Dancing shrimp (Rhynchocinetes uritai) can be found almost everywhere in Indonesia. So I found a special place at pair Ilmuh where one was dancing on an almost white sponge. I wanted to capture the wonderful green eyes, and it was very hard to get the right position and shapes of the eyes.
