Risky business

I never truly appreciated the design perfection and vivid colours of sea urchins until recently, when I had a chance to get up close while reef walking on Lady Elliot Island.

These photos were taken with an INON macro lens and the last two are cropped images of larger photos. Some of them also appeared in my very first blog post!

    Wow! Amazing Anna! Just extraordinary creatures. Not just the vivid colours, but their perfect design, function and symmetry. 🙂
