Very nice! It looks excactly like coral reef tube worms called "Feather Dusters" when they are poking their heads out of their tubes to feed. I used to love them in my Reef Tank years ago and before it died in "Katrina".

Wow! What a unique and beautiful bloom. It's been so much fun see all the plants RosinaBloom has been contributing from New Zealand.

David, that's exactly what this bloom reminded me of, we used to have a salt water tank too!

Glad you know what I was talking about Kell!
You are so fortunate Kin,... along with all who have been blessed to be World traveled.

I have never left the Continental U.S. personally. I have never visited any part past Houston going West,...and have never been further North then NYC....

....I have been fortunate to have visited and lived for a while in many other beautiful places within those parameters though... and have been lucky to have shared in the beauty within those boundaries alone!
