Haystack Rock tidepools - July 2004


Sea Stars and Anemone

The center of this photo shows a number of common (ochre) sea stars. Along the left side are several giant green anemone, closed up to conserve moisture while exposed during low tide. Also present in the upper portion of the picture are aggregating anemone. The pink color at the bottom of the photo results from the presence of sponges and coralline algae.
