Congratulations Donna! This beautifully colored anemone has been selected as Spotting of the Day!

"The Giant Green Anemone can be found along the low to mid intertidal zones of the Pacific Ocean. Like other anemones, it uses stinging cells in its tentacles called nematocysts to help capture and paralyze prey. "
