Picture of the Week, ORA Sprung’s Stunner Ultra Closeup


ORA Sprung's Stunner Closeup

For this week’s AquaNerd POTW, we’re getting an extreme up close look at the ORA Sprung’s Stunner from our friend Daniel Leija’s 40-gallon reef aquarium. In Daniel’s aquarium, this coral has a broadly plating growth form and sports a deep purple base with neon green polyps. Depending on the lighting, the coral can take on a tan base color, while the corallites usually remain that glowing green regardless. As far as the details for this shot go, we used a 100mm macro lens with a couple of lens extenders that really let us get ultra close shots.
