So does this one!!!

Now this next one is rather gorgeous I think!

It’s a strawberry anemone and apparently far less common (doncha know!) than the ones above!

Mind you, in Cornwall it’s a little more common!

However I was in Devon and here is she who I am twittering about!

Very pretty!

Very pretty!

Here’s a couple of interesting facts for you…..

Each anemone is a large individual polyp with a mouth surrounded by tentacles.

The number of tentacles varies depending on the species and age, but is common for them to be in multiples of six.

And that’s all for today!
