There's always something interesting if you look for the small. Crabs that camouflage

themselves with algae and anemones, shrimp that live on sea stars, crinoids and sea

cucumbers.  It's always worth (carefully) looking in and under things just to see what

tiny critter may be there that won't be found without some searching.

Most of these were photographed using my old style film 60mm lens on a Nikon D200

digital camera. This works very well for small  and really small subjects (if they will

let you get close to them--a separate problem).
