Caption: Sea fan or gorgonian with a scuba diver. A sea fan is a coral-like organism, a colony of tiny polyps that build a tough structure around themselves for protection and support. The individual polyps feed by sifting tiny food particles from the currents. The fan is orientated to present the largest surface area to the prevailing current. Photographed in the Mediterranean Sea.
