THAILAND. Similan Islands National Marine Park, Phangna Province. March 24th, 2013. A harlequin shrimp (sp. hymenocera elgans) feeds on a starfish. Captured at Richilieu Rock, so name by ocean explorer and conservationist, Jaques Cousteau, on account that the purple soft corals which blanket the pinnacle of the submerged rock reminded him of the colour of Carindal Richileu's cape.
