Incredible Sponge Photo

This incredible photo
by William Goodwin was taken at Lighthouse Atoll in Belize.  William is a huge fan of sponges and this image was selected for includion in the “Art of Photography” show in the San Diego Art Institute.  The photo required William to hold his camera completely still with one hand and to illuminate the back of the vase sponge with a handheld light.  The results speak for themselves and turn into a work of art featuring our favorite Aiptasia eater, the Peppermint Shrimp (Lysmata pederseni).  More information on what went into getting the photo and the art exhibit are HERE.
