These sea anemone were, it seams, suddenly visible when the tide started coming back in. I was very surprised with how well the images turned out considering the subjects were submerged and I was using a flash. They were found nearby the starfish in the previous post. The lower image could only be imaged from overhead and suffers from some reflection of the sky. As Tom said in a earlier post I should have had my polarizer.

Thank you gentlemen for your interest. The subjects were approximately 2.5 to 3 inches in diameter. It was a very overcast day on the coast due to a heavy ocean fog. I had to work hand held due to the constant wave action on the rocky beach. I employed the flash to allow for a higher shutter speed. Camera to subject angle was approximately 45 degrees for image number 1. An image could only be obtained during a 5 second window as a breaking wave drained off the beach, leaving a undisturbed water surface over the subject. Image sharpness is a testament to the water clarity of the Pacific ocean. I got quite wet but managed not to ruin the camera, which was in the air and not in a water proof container
