[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, is a paradise for divers. I'm not one of them :) All I could do, was swimming with a mask at the surface.
This sharp capture was taken in a shallow water with camera being above the water. I can't figure it out what it was. A bivalve or something? It contracted from time to time. Anybody knows?

je ne connais pas l'animal mais je trouve cette photo intéressante et très bien réalisée. Belles couleurs! bravo.

The water is so clean and clear. I haven't seen anything like this before, not even on a TV show. It is an interesting subject to shoot, and part of nature. Well done. I like the fact that your camera didn't get any of the water glare that usually happens without a polarizer filter. Very nicely done.
Sorry out of points today.

Very unusual most excellent capture the colours are beautiful.

Looks like a museum piece from Roman Times. Excellent composition and nice colors.

What ever it is, it looks great in your photograph. It looks almost ceramic

I don't think it's a bivalve, rather some kind of worm. Very nice picture!

Its a Platyhelminth... Basically a flatworm. I studied Platyhelminthes in school. They have amazing colors and you found an amazing colored one
