Anemone in Current

These ominous-looking tentacles belong to a sea anemone. They can be seen here floating gracefully in the ocean current. The tips of the tentacles are equipped with special stinging cells on their tips known as nematocysts. The anemone uses these stingers to capture and immobilize its prey, which consists mainly of small fish.
