Mesmerizing

What are these you ask?
These Tube Anemones burrow their "feet" in sediment underwater while their innumerable tentacles perform their undulating silent dance to put everyone who watches them into a spellbinding trance.

That was a subject I would really have liked to have a go at - I liked these very much.

I need an alien who can talk to your alien.

They are alien from Mars.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts!

Rainfield61: I could not stop looking at these like the aliens have put me in a trance and extending their their arms trying to grab whatever happens by.

Jam: You're right, you can't tell they are under water. There are no bubbles or floating particles.

Mei Teng: These were taken at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Too bad I couldn't say that I went diving and I saw these. :D
