Best Science Photographs of 2005

National Geographic has posted five of the best science photos of 2005, here.

What looks like a grisly end for a little shrimp is actually a study in symbiosis in this winning picture from the 2005 Visions of Science Photographic Awards.

Photographer Jim Greenfield took the picture off the coast of Curaçao in the Dutch Antilles islands. The image shows a lizard fish opening wide for a shrimp, while the shrimp cleans its teeth of parasites.
