NOAA Photo Library Image - expn5302

Large octocoral bush with purple base imaged in expn5301. Although there are patches of both purple and whitish grey polyps, the purple do not seem to be a separate colonizing coral or zoanthid species. Two large "black" whip corals with white polyps are also seen.
