Camouflaged Shrimp

During the day the coral polyps extend to long stems with flower-like tips. At night they retract. This shrimp was very well camouflaged. The pattern on it's body made it vanish completely when it positioned itself in certain places. Transparent legs, claws and tail can be seen in the slide and high-res scan.
