Red Creature from Water Planet

Believe it or not, this is from our planet. From the same time expedition, this is a live sea urchin, my guess lytechinus variegatus, with a beautiful sweeping shot of the extra-shallow flats at the end of the footage.

Cliff and the Little Anemone

Cliff's finger and Anenome
It was absolute low tide last week, what with the Solstice coming up and a full moon, so Cliff and I went out on the recently-appeared Shallows to see what could be seen.

This is little anemone wrapped around Cliff's finger. (He knew all about it, how it's nematocysts were too fine to go through human skin.)

Ain't it pretty?
