These underwater "fleas" are undescribed ladybug amphipods well known for being in the Komodo area. They are found on many different kinds of subjects, including corals, sponges, tunicates, hydroids, and more. This is a hydroid, waving back and forth in the surge, so it was a challenge to shoot! (Olympus E-M1, 60mm macro lens, +10 diopter, at closest focus). Baleh, near Gilimota, Komodo, Indonesia.
