Photo prise dans le petit port de Saint Elme (La Seyne-sur-Mer, sud de la France) à partir du quai.
Les tuniciers.
Ce sont des animaux filtreurs, solitaires ou coloniaux. Certains vivent fixés au substrat, ce sont les ascidies ; d'autres dérivent en pleine eau. Ces organismes planctoniques sont les salpes qui peuvent former des colonies de plusieurs mètres de long.
Chaque individu entretient une circulation d'eau filtrée à travers une branchie qui retient la nourriture qui, une fois digérée, est évacuée par un siphon cloaqual.
Les zoologistes considèrent les ascidies et les salpes comme les invertébrés les plus évolués.

This is an absolutely amazing image! Fabulous colours and details (though I think I might have cropped out some of the blur in the foreground)

Comme c'est joli.

What an intriguing shot.
I have never seen anything like that... and with such sharp details too.
Interesting shapes and luminescence. Great notes.
Merci pour le partage. : )

Hello Jean Luis!
Another interesting picture "from the sea" :) I like this idea to show something: 1.very interesting and poorly known, 2.really non-commertial.
This picture can be divided into three parts: sand (?), tunicates, and black BG. Unfortunatelly (as for me) the animals take only about 1/4 of all picture. Also the first pat of the view (sand) is not sharp and because it takes about 1/4 of picture is does not look very good. Ibelieve that this picture would be much better if you decide to cut a little its lower and upper part to better expose the most important thing of this photo - animals :)
Anyway, I really like that you are showing such interesting creatures!
Best regards,
