Here are a few of my miscellaneous underwater photographs (mostly shot at about 20 meters or so), depicting some animals -- those various anemones seen below -- which actually "photosynthesize a bit," due to algae which live symbiotically in their tissues. So, here we have animals who masquerade -- to a slight degree -- as plants. Sound familiar? The largest anemones, Tealia, can actually capture and eat fish, and are about the diameter of a dinner plate.
There is absolutely no excuse for the octopus shot. But who here doesn't really like an octopus, huh?
