I think this is amazing. It's obvious why it's called "brain" coral. They could have called it worm coral and it would have been a good name too. Excellent shot.:-)
Great shot. Beautiful, even though I dont know what it us..Happy WW:)
Certainly an appropriate name! I was also thinking worms.Nature - amazing!Great shot by the way.
That was an amazing photo!!!
That's a very nice pattern. Happy WW! :)
oh my gosh! looks like a worms, hehhee..nice capture..
Oh okay.. when I still haven't heard that it is macro, I had a hard time thinking what it was.My entry for Watery Wednesday is posted here. Happy mid-week!
What a great image. The textures and curves could be abstract art.
That is such a great image. Love the close up.
Wild. A bit creepy looking, to me. Great shot.
Very intricate and interesting!
Okay, I'm sure there's a pun to be made here somewhere, along the lines of those "This is your brain" publice service announcements, but I'm only on my first coffee, so I can't quite put it together...Super WW shot, anyway!
It's scares me! Looks like worms.. To think that it is coral. Nature is amazing
I sometimes wish my brain looked this neat and tidy.
Incredible to think that was all made by tiny organisms! And photographed so beutifully, too!Thanks for sharing!
Nature provides the best show. Nice picture.
Cool picture, coral is endlessly fascinating.
Oh wow..diving really takes you on a magical journey....
What a great macro with such details. So beautiful!!
Another great shot. Interesting that is looks a bit related to my WW. I think your idea of a mud wasp is correct. I linked a bunch of Google images to a comment on my WW post. There are many that look similar.Happy WW and thanks again for the visit.
Brilliant! Excellent shot I can see why it's caled brain coral
Not a maze--but amazing nonetheless! This is fascinating stuff.
I would have never guessed what this was. Wonderful photo.
IT could also look like worms, spaghetti (with only butter) and even a brain. :-)Great picture this week, as usual
I always see this stuff on documentaries. Very cool.
Hi ScienceGuy - Yes, there are many varieties of corals that have a "brain" pattern on their surface.Bobbie
