Got an underwater camera? Practice that buoyancy. Get the guide to help you hover. Do a weight check. Don’t over flash. Don’t harass or chase or poke or prod. Be a good seatizen and don’t make the reef pay the ultimate price for your photo.

If you look closely, this little commensal shrimp is carrying eggs. I pretty much never spot if it’s pregnant or not until I can zoom in on the photo. Happy Easter all! 

Species: Periclimenes tosaensis

This photo was taken without manipulating or moving the animal, without lying on coral or touching the reef to balance. This photo was taken without excessive flash which can stress animals. If you can’t get in close enough with your buoyancy, take your photos in raw and zoom in. No photo is worth the damage.
