Anemone hermit crabs have a special relationship with a specific anemone: they find them and persuade them to set up house on their shells, where the anemones protect the hermit with their stinging cells, the hermit provides them with a mobile home.

This harlequin crab has established itself inside the felt-like tube of a burrowing anemone. It gives it the protection of the anemone's stinging tentacles.

"Timeless" is an image of Dusky dolphins taken of Cape Point on our way to the deep, it is pretty rare for them to hand around divers so this was an awesome opportunity to jump in and it paid off.
