Originally created as a lucky talisman, this creation turned into an anxiety distraction. That it worked, has not been proven yet.
As a Lifetime achievement honoree, the image & related set is posted for dada, the pied piper of blues.
The "Orange Ball Anemone" in the set, is a relatively recent discovery in my reef tank, in my other office( only another room at the other end of my compound, but it has a desk.). Although I have seen them in my tanks previously, I had never had the occasion to see the central part of the body, but only, waving tentacles from a crevice in the rocks. This species, akin to transparent glass, is such a small beauty. It is in a location that makes it quite hard to shoot also. At full extension, it is maybe as big as a quarter. These are hitch-hiker additions to a reef. They will come in on a piece of rock & make their appearance when you least expect to see them, making reefing a constant & evolving delight.
Then, for those who can`t resist a kitty, there`s one on Planet Earth.
