Description

This is the second one that I found in 2015, still more or less in the same place, but I am not convinced that it is exactly the same spot. I have in the past had difficulty relocating this one, it may have moved slightly (10s of cm), or maybe it is just that the seaweeds come and go and sometimes obscure it.

This is the same one I first found in Oct 2015, still going strong at the same location.

The rocky winter beach has given way to a much sandier summer beach and many of the anemones are buried in the sand. Unfortunately, I didn't find any sea stars so they may not have recovered on this stretch beach yet.

One of my favourite little anemones that I can't identify. My guess is an anthopleura species.

The last photo is of two others in the same pool.

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.
