Tickle Me Pink

    Newer Older

    The Giant Caribbean Anemone (Condylactis gigantea) comes in a wide variety of different colors. However, this one in Bonaire (Netherland Antilles) kind of stood out from the rest! Pink is a nice color, don't ya' think?

    This creature is not particularly harmful, but has been known to cause minor irritation to some people. I guess we have something in common. 0)

      Thanks Ann. I am glad you like it. I welcome your critique any time (good AND bad). I'd like to improve my skills. I've seen your work. You turn ordinary subjects into fabulous works of art.

      Fantastic ... incredible details and color. I worked with a guy that did lot's of underwater stuff ... I know it ain't easy to get good shots !!

      Hey Jimbo1239. (I love your buddy icon). Thanks for the compliment, I really appreciate it.

      Stationary subjects such as this anemone, and snails and slow moving crustaceans are easier to shoot than the fish and octopi in my photostream. The later subjects move, turn away, change color, and... well sometimes just hide. The shots must be composed and taken quickly, all while wearing a scuba mask and assorted breathing equipment. It has its challenges... but ya' know, there's nothing else I'd rather be doing! Take care.

      In the coast of Salvador it exists, frequently this species, here we called it Paciflora anémona.

      Beautiful shot! Chancing upon your incredible collection really made my day and I've spent the last two hours admiring your images. Thank you. I'm considering using this image in a reef id app called PocketReef in the next update. Hopefully you have an iOS device. Image credits are in the ABOUT tab. Free on iTunes here
