Sea Cucumber

The difference between slow film and a pro lens, verses a disposable camera can be quite striking.  The
color is what surprises me here.  The sea cucumbers were pretty common, and are really stuck
to the bottom.

Sea Urchins

The difference between slow film and a pro lens, verses a disposable camera can be quite striking.  This

Aggregate Green Anemone
This one was way under a rock so I don't think it gets as much light and consequently had less alegae and green color.
Species: Anthopleura elegantissima (Aggregating Anemone, Clonal Anemone)

Three Closed Anemones
These aggregating anemone (Anthopleura elegantissima) have picked up bits of sand and shell. If they were out of the water, that junk may help prevent them from drying out, and offer some protection from the sun.
Species: Anthopleura elegantissima (Aggregating Anemone, Clonal Anemone)
