    Naked and sticky.

    This is the first one of these I've seen out in the open: Clock face anemone (Peachia cylindrica)



    Then after the dive we came across this little guy in the back of the car: Stick insect (Acanthoxyla inermis)



    The title said it all!

    The title did catch my eye but I thought it from Strange one. Nice piccies though, thanks for sharing.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    The anemone was in Dunmanus Bay Ireland (a bit South of Bantry Bay) the stick insect was in the same place although we believe it was carried there with us from Kenmare where there have been breeding colonies for a over century now, saying that they are also known along the West Cork coast so we felt happy to release it there.
