4303 thumbnail picture
A beautiful white stony coral with a pinkish-orange squat lobster, a white octocoral, and a red shrimp. Below the white stony coral is a honeycomb like life form and at the bottom of the picture is a grey irregular object that may be a sponge. To the left of the white stony coral are circular features within a larger mass that may be a tunicate colony.

4304 thumbnail picture
A large diaphanous structure called a "shrimp web" in the field. A large red shrimp is seen either on the other side of this feature or enmeshed within it. Numerous coral species are also seen in this image. There appears to be the top of a similar structure at the bottom center edge of this image.

4305 thumbnail picture
The "shrimp web" of image expl5765 seen from the side. The large red shrimp does appear to be enmeshed in this structure. Is this something constructed by the shrimp, or is something made by another creature as a hunting strategy?
