fish-eating sea anemone (pic)

The picture below is another that I recently had scanned and digitized from a Fujichrome 50 slide. It is a close-up photo of the beautiful markings in between the tentacles of a fish-eating sea anemone (Urticina piscivora). This photo has always made me think of the candies my grandmother used to sometimes give me.

There isnít much to say about taking or editing this picture. The anemone was photographed in a public aquarium over 20 years ago.

Cheers,
EC
