Basket Star Shrimp

Basket Star Shrimp

A Basket Star Shrimp (Periclimenes lanipes) on a naked basket star (Astroboa nuda). This is shot at night when the basket star uncurls to filter food from the water. It is particularly difficult to get since the basket star is curling itself immediately when it senses light, so one only has a couple of seconds to get focus.
