Some Of My Favorite Things…

…while snorkeling are these Christmas tree worms. The body of the worm is in a calcareous tube bored into the coral. What you see here are the radioles, which the worm extend from the tube to catch food. If you get too close, the radioles zip down into the tube. Aren’t these beauties?
