Caption

Harlequin shrimp. Pair of harlequin shrimps (Hymenocera picta) with starfish prey. These shrimp are almost always found in pairs, with the female larger than the male. They feed on starfish feet, turning the starfish over to expose its feet and immobilise it. The female can grow up to 5 centimetres in length. Photographed in the Andaman Sea, Myanmar (Burma).
