Many of the beautiful varied textures and shapes to be found underwater – very tempting to touch but much safer to just look at 🙂 These photos are all from recent diving off Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast.
Featherstars are graceful, colourful filter feeders. Their arms curl and sway in the current, making interesting shapes. The first photo was taken on the outer Great Barrier Reef and I used a flash (so the red really showed up). The second photo is at Lady Elliot Island without a flash.
