Beautiful, it looks so delicate. So much beauty under the ocean that most of us never see. Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos.

Such delicacy here Derek. This is outstanding photography! At what depth do you find such beautiful creatures?

Warm greetings, Amelia

You nay be interested to know that there is yet another diver here on Panoramio :)

Derek Holzapfel on October 20, 2010

Thank you Amelia; My underwater photos are taken anywhere from the inter-tidal to about 30m maximum. The Plumose Anemones can be found at low tide to very deep. This photo was taken at 10m. regards

So I expect that I'm unlikely to see these. What a pity :(

I have only seen 'beadlets' in Norway, and have come across snake-lock anemones in the UK.

Derek Holzapfel on October 20, 2010

Hi Anemia; Perhaps you may. It says here: Plumose that their range is along the entire Norwegian coast.

Amelia Royan on October 20, 2010

Hello Derek, I have a new name I see :))

Many thanks for that superb link! I'll make a point of keeping my eyes open for them next year.

Ooops, sorry Amelia. Being jet lagged this morning and up since 4 am; guess I crossed Anemone and Amelia. I believe that is called "dyslexia"? :-)
