So these animals don't have stalks themselves, they borrow them?
Nice and colourful compared to the ones I see here.Pardon my ignorance, but is that washed up, in a rock pool, or in deeper water?
They were washed ashore.
At the moment, the water is simply turbid and well, too cold, to go snorkeling in Perth. By the way, Mosura (Alan?) if you have photos of Tassie lace corals, I would love to see them : )Loves to know all marine critters,Chai
I just re-read the link you gave on previous post and realised they have stalks but attach to stems... this all all very new to me!
Wait a minute. You are sure the link isn't referring to sea tulips?Lace corals have no stalks, do they?Chai
I don't think I have a lace coral photo but there are plenty of other marine beasties in my album. here are some links:Echinoderms | Crustaceans | Zoantharians | Algae | Sponges | Other_Marine_Inverts | MolluscsI need to update the album with new pics and fix the captions etc. I'll get around to it eventually.
Ah! Now I see why you said you are a naturalist in your user profile. You really are! : )Sorry I don't believe everything I read on the net ;pBeautiful photos you have in those albums - How many years of work is that?
Ah yes, but notice I qualify the term "naturalist" with the words amateur and novice :-) You are a naturalist yourself after all.All the photo in the albums I linked to were taken since 2006. Prior to that I was in Scotland. I have albums of Scottish nature photos in there too somewhere. Before my time in Scotland there were no digital cameras and I couldn't afford that much film :-)
Thanks for calling me a naturalist. FYI, the head of my school (School of Plant Biology)called me an "honorary marine biologist". (Laughs)
I am thankful that there are digital cameras that are affordable and that can be used underwater. Otherwise, I don't think I could create this blog.
