Light bulb sea squirts (Clavelina lepadiformis). Shot last weekend off Exmouth. S coast of England in about 8m.  Forgot to charge flash - so natural light.  They are almost transparent and very difficult to light.

I know jewel anemonies are a cliche - but not without reason.  Raglan Reef in SW England has walls and walls of these in all colours - this is why I dive in England.  Shot with a Canon G10
