Tube anemone underwater

Tube Anemone, Bali

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Environment This large tube anemone, photographed in Tulamben, Bali, stood high off the black-sand bottom, allowing me to shoot its spectacular tentacles from below and capture its graceful movement. The flashlight highlighted the anemone's dazzling luminance, while the setting sun added a sense of atmosphere. This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries, play jigsaw puzzles, and download wallpaper of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
