Amazing anemones

I posted a blog about the anemones that thrive on the West Coast in March 2008 but I had to scratch about for a picture of them on the Net and the one I found really didn’t do them justice.

But here’s one I took with My Digital Camera (it’s so nice to have joined the real world at last) and I hope you agree with me – they’re just astonishing.

This pic has captured a few of the colours but there are others too – pure white, for instance, and sky blue: unusual colours in nature. (The tide was coming in when I was taking these pics so I was getting drowned a bit...)

I love that they’re animals, not plants. If you touch them, they react: they squinch up and start to close.
