Caption: Soft coral polyps (Dendronephthya sp.) opened out and feeding. Soft corals (octocorals) are colonies of tiny organisms (polyps) that build tough structures around themselves for protection and support. The polyps have eight tentacles that trap water-borne food particles and pass them to the mouth at the centre of the tentacles. Photographed in the Red Sea.
