Day 9: Strawberry fields

 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.
