Fish-eating anemone, Urticina piscivora
Fish-eating anemones (Urticina piscivora) are beleived to live for
hundreds of years. This is a good hing, since it took me almost that long to get
the lighting right on this shot. Though these anemones are quite common,
specimens well positioned for photographers are few and far between.
