Well, a rear view anyway.

My first close encounter of the wandering kind. Found at low tide (about an hour after low tide), on a stone in the surf. Kidnapped and transferred to a rockpool for the photo shoot.

Description from Wikipedia

Sea anemones are a group of water-dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named for the anemone, a terrestrial flower. Sea anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia. Anthozoa often have large polyps that allow for digestion of larger prey and also lack a medusa stage. As cnidarians, sea anemones are related to corals, jellyfish, tube-dwelling anemones, and Hydra.
