Down payment

There are more things in heaven and earth under the wharf, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

With apologies to Wm. Shakespeare (Hamlet Act 1, scene 5)

I looked at one of the under-the-wharf photos, and was lost. Herring can wait! I've got critters to identify, or to wish I could identify. Here's the first of the lot, and the easiest to recognize.

Three plumose anenomes, a bit of sea lettuce, some purply, tentacled gift-wrap ribbon, other stuff, worms, maybe.

But what is that pink, five-armed, blobby thing in the middle? It doesn't look like a starfish. Or does it?

This was taken down the crack between two wharf segments, with the sunlight illuminating the water beneath, and glancing down at an angle from above. The blue at the bottom is wharf paint.

Now, back to work: I've got some strange beasties to identify.


  1. What an amazing shot. The anemone on the right kind of looks like a Halloween pumpkin with funny hair on top. Guess that wouldn't count as an identification though. - Margy

  2. I haven't visited for a while, but glad I stumbled upon your blog again. Amazing photo as always!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
