Monterey Bay Aquarium Burrowing Anemones

Monterey Bay Aquarium Burrowing Anemones

Burrowing anemones at the Monterey Bay Aquarium are very colorful.  Their arms capture food drifting by on the ocean currents, and their tube-like bodies extend two feet down into the sand.

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.
