“Argonaut Wharf Candy Stripe Shrimp.

Congratulations Bryan.

“Ever since I moved to Vancouver Island, the candy stripe shrimp was top of my list for macro critter to find. One day when diving at Argonaut Wharf, my fiancee and I were checking crimson anemones on the off chance that there might be one. As I was taking a photo of a grunt sculpin, she swam over and frantically motioned me over. I followed her over the sand, and there it was, a beautiful crimson anemone with a bunch of candy stripe shrimp on it! One was even on the mouth!
