Caption: An image of Stichodactyla tapetum anemone in long wave UV Light showing Fluorescence. This species of anemone will glow brightly when illuminated in ultra-violet(UV) light. It is thought the glow may protect the anemone from the intense ultraviolet light of the Sun in shallow water. This image is part of a series showing the identical specimen in white light and UV light.
