Hi Mark,

This is truly a gorgeous shot. You can see a lot more that just the mouth grasping the thecate hydroid. Note also the genital apertures, with erected male organ, the digestive gland ramifying thoughtout the body and the exquisite detail of the "cerata." Fantastic.

Thanks for sharing,
Dave Behrens
