This is one of the first shots with my underwater housing for
my camera. I've had it for a while and have not had a chance to
use it. The extremely low tides this week were a good opportunity
to go wading through the tidal pools taking pictures. 'Course, the water
was so shallow they were all extreme close ups, but that's just fine with me.
These guys are really
beautiful, they are related to jelly fish, but they stay on
the bottom, usually anchored to a rock under the sand.
The pretty colors come from a symbiotic algae living in
their translucent tissues.
