NOAA Photo Library Image - expn2474

Tar lily with a few anemones and stunted corals. In the right bottom are a few yellowish sponges and a purple holothurian. Monofilament fishing line is tangled up in the lower right showing that even rare natural features are not immune from marine debris. A gooseneck barnacle with cirri extended and small Paramuricean corals with associated brittle stars are also seen.
