Know your Anemone.

More of Andy Ferrier's underwater pictures, taken in the clear waters of the Sound of Islay. Here's some of the Sea anemones that are about down there.  Anyone know what they are?

The sea bed in this last shot seems to contain a huge amount of broken coral fragments

    The first photo is of Dahlia Anemone and the last appears to be Cerianthus Iloydii, not sure of the middle one. The broken fragments are the dead broken remains of 'maerl' formed from the calcareous seaweed Lithothamnia.
