From the minds of the Underwater Photography Guide (www.uwphotographyguide.com) we bring you our favorite, most surreal, beautiful & enchanting photos from the deep blue sea.

"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in it's net of wonder forever." - Jacques Cousteau

 

Tube Anemone Larva
This is an unsettled tube anemone larve, Cerianthid species.
It was about 1/2 inch long, floating by in the blue-water (1000ft deep ocean) in Southern California. Notice how there are two types of tentacles.
It should plant into the ground (upside-down) and grow into a nice big tube anemone!
