Word and Image

Anemone

IMG_2118 bThis is the animal that symbiotically protects the clownfish, ‘Nemo.’ I sometimes see the backside, behind the tentacles. The image that I got was a surprise when I enlarged it. First of all the backside is a deep rich red color. And there on the surface were two strange fish, not Nemos. You see the tentacles of the anemone. But the fish were kind of spooky just stuck there. They were not swimming by and they were not expected. I have this happen a lot. You never quite know what you have until you get it up on the computer screen.

  1. WOW! How very interesting. I had no idea there was a “backside”. I don’t know how I thought the tentacles stayed together. This is a fantastic image! 🙂

  2. I will receive a book on Red Sea fish and coral soon. It turns out that there is a second type of fish associated with the anemone. Maybe you don’t see them out much during the day.
