Bumblebee Shrimp

These Bumblebee Shrimp (Phyllognathia ceratophthalmus) require a lot of patience and a fair bit of luck. They are incredibly shy and will slip into a crevice at the slightest provocation. The good news is that they are in relatively shallow water (about 4 meters at Tulamben) and a diver can spend hours combing the rocks and coral for a glimpse.
