Murky Mangrove

On our second visit to the mangroves at the edge of Baie Lucas, we encountered less than ideal visibility. We did take some photos and video near the mangroves and further out in the bay, including some of the gregarious anemones that cling to the mangrove roots. Due to a lack of active research on Caribbean anemones, it is basically impossible to identify them exactly, although they closely resemble what is cited as the sponge anemone in the popular Reef Creature Identification guide.

The shots of green feather algae (Caulerpa sertularioides) and green mermaid’s wine glass (Acetabularia crenulata) feature a snow globe-like effect from particulate matter in the water.
