Just me and my anemone friends! 🐟💜🐟 *
I just cannot pass on photographing a colorful clown in a beautiful anemone... and, this one certainly fit the bill! It's as though the shrimp were just the perfectly matched accessories to this stunning anemone.
But, this was only our 2nd dive of the trip and it did foreshadow something we saw more of - anemone bleaching and coral bleaching. In this photo, you can see a white tentacle behind the clown (on the right). And, we saw more of this. There were a few spots that have been hit by the seas that are just too warm; I still have hope that this can change but it's a sad sight to see in such pristine waters.
