This is the other half of the pair in symbiosis. It is not known how these two living things, amazing in their own right, could form a bond that is unbelievably strong.
I have moved some of these anemones where the clown has leaped inside it.
I had not realized it until later while transporting the anemone in a bucket.
At other times while removing an anemone, the clown would leap up above the water surface trying to protect it, or seek refuge in it.
Now, I just start another reef if I have to remove an anemone that is paired with a clown fish.
When they get to know each other, & it does take a little time depending on many things, the clown will suckle on the tentacles. Now, if any other fish did this, he would either be an idiotfish, a perverted masochistfish, or a deadfish.
The clown fish brings food to the anemone & often will dive down into it ( I call it 'toughed' diving )& cuddle up in there for a nap.
These two are on a lifelong trip. Good luck to them both.
What a beautiful couple.
In the header, a 5 shot composite that I doubled over for the format size.
The bean sprout on Planet Earth, is in 3D.
It is a very good example of the 3D shots I do & easy to bring into view. If you view it, try tilting the screen towards you at the top or away from you at the bottom.
The leaves come way out of the monitor.
Think of ducking out of the way, when something came at you while wearing those red & green glasses.
In the meanwhile, I hope your skies are clear (for the eclipse) as well as your skin, (for your well being).
Good night, & do be "gruntled", please.
I don`t like disgruntled people.
