sea flower

The pup and I were out for a walk on the beach yesterday afternoon, but with heavy overcast skies the light was blah and I hadn’t been inspired to take any photos. We were getting ready to leave, when I found this beautiful sea anemone.

It was like a glowing green flower, undulating gently in the shallow water of its tidal pool. Luckily I had my macro lens with me. I set up my tripod and took the shot, just as the first drops of rain started to fall. And then I packed up my gear, reminding myself that it’s often the little things in life that are so rewarding.

P.S. I always thought the sea anemone was an animal, but apparently new research has determined it is part animal and part plant.
