These Anemones like to be close to each other.

Beth Kattleman photographed rocks covered in Anemones. I found out the name for these animals is Aggregating Anemones.

Here's an interesting photo taken by Roberta Chan of one of these Anemones that got lucky in a tide pool when a By-the-Wind-Sailor, Velella velella, was washed up. The hapless Sailor was apparently a very tasty treat.

Thanks to Beth and Roberta for allowing me to share their photos with you here.
