In April 2011, I once again arrived on the Farallon National Wildlife Refuge to start another season of seabird research working with PRBO Conservation Science. In my seventh and perhaps last season, I decided to start a photo a day challenge for myself. The challenge is to share a new and interesting photo for each day I am on the island this year.
We made our annual spring trip to Jewel cave today. We have to have a nice low tide to get in there but it's so worth it. There is large tide pool in Jewel cave that holds many small wonders. So many I had a hard time deciding what to post. This is a Stawberry anemone (Corynactis californica) surrounded by orange sponge. The anemone is actually not an anemone at all but more closely related to coral and it's about a centimeter across. Still, it looks good enough to eat.
