Amedeo Altomare simnie Canon G9 1/200 f.8

Harald Schottner flamingo tongue. where? Dutch Antilles?

Amedeo Altomare :D nooo Mediterranean sea,italy

Harald Schottner unbelievable, looks like Flamingo tongue. but I don´t believe they are in med-sea

Sylvie Omnès they are ! Simnia Spelta ("white simnie") is endemic in the West Med Sea; it feeds on 3 species of gorgonians, the shell is white and the color of the mantel depends of the color of its food, from brown to red ...
