Photographer's Note

This was taken on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland.

This shot is notable not only for the large anemone you see here but also because I managed to capture three different species of damselfish in the same shot. If I'm reading my fish book correctly, the black one is a Three-spot Dascyllus (Dascyllus trimaculatus), the brilliant white, black and orange ones are Dusky Anemonefish (Amphiprion melanopus) and the orange and white ones are Pink Anemonefish (Amphiprion perideraion).

I don't have an identification book for the anemone but I posted a close-up view of it (with its subtle purple tips) here.

This shot was taken with disposable camera in an Ikelite housing w/ strobe
