The Anemone Is Not Your Enemy

My lovely wife, Dr Desert Flower, used to say to me "The anemone is not your enemy"... but anemones can pack a painful sting, and do eat things that are smaller than themselves.  Not your enemy, if you're bigger than a crab and are smart enough to stay far enough away from them to not get stung. Ok.

The Headlands tide pools at Dana Point have no shortage of anemones,  Big ones, little ones, all sorts of sizes and shapes.   I've seen them in the water, as well as exposed to the air at low tide.   Fascinating creatures.
