On this year’s visit to the Coral Garden at Green Canyon 852 in about 1400m of water, as we approached the site with Jason, we noticed this impressive seawhip on the outskirts. We stopped to take a closer look and take some still photographs with the macrocamera. As we looked at the coral, we noticed a number of species of shrimp making their homes within the branches. And, we noticed this one species of shrimp with its impressive swimming stroke hovering above the coral.
