Mushroom Coral Shrimp
Periclimenes kororensis

 

These lovely little shrimp are often looked over. Due to their white heads they can be difficult to see and, when you do see them, difficult to see past thier heads. Their white heads help them camouflage themselves perfectly.

For both video and photographs they are a challenge, as the contrast between their light heads and the darker parts of their bodies make capturing images tricky…and they live at the bottom of Mushroom Coral polyps that are swaying back and forth!!

But they are worth the effort, as they have a wonderful shape and great textures.
