Description
While my friends dived this amazing tropical reef, I found this large stunning red and orange sponge in an overhang at 30 meters. Upon investigating I noticed 1000's of shrimps of all different types. Some with eggs, some flying and some running. This attractive female rested for a moment. I was fascinated by her eggs, the translucent colours in her body and its design of her body. It was time to leave this dark secret world and apprerciate the brightly lit reef my friends had enjoyed.
