Two fan-worms on soft coral.
Taken while snorkelling using a G9 in an underwater housing.
Fan-worms will disappear back into the tube if you get too close so it's a bit like grandmother's footsteps to get a decent photo.
I particularly like the blanket of soft coral & the complementary pastel shades.

Superbly detaile image Penny, looks such an intricate form of life under the waves.

What a fascinating shot - something I will never be able to photograph, even if I had the technical ability! This is wonderful, so clearly detailed in both the worms and the coral.

Thanks for commenting , I must put something else on soon, but I do love this particular underwater picture, a bit different from my usual style.
