Green Anemone, Vancouver Island

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos

Diving Browning Passage at the northern end of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, is one of the most spectacular experiences in the Pacific Northwest. The sheer diversity and abundance of life is astonishing. At the end of one dive, ascending into rough and choppy surface conditions, I took this lucky shot of a green anemone as a wave washed over it.
