Nudibranchs seem to be the favorite critters of most underwater macro photographers as they are not only diverse in color, size and body shapes – they also move slowly (most species). It’s a little different with marine shrimps. They can move fast and sometimes even disappear completely in a blink of an eye. This makes them a more difficult photo subject and calls for patience and slow movements. But if you get the perfect shot of one of Romblon’s rare species, you feel even more rewarded. Here we want to present you a list of some of our favorite Romblon shrimps.
This might be the rare occasion, where you can take photos from the underside of a shrimp, while the animal is behaving naturally and undisturbed. These shrimp move between the spikes of their sea urchin habitat often up-side-down.
The Green Dragon Shrimp can not only be found in green, but also in orange. Both color forms are the same species: Miropandalus hardingi. The green color form is rarely found (in comparison to the orange one).
