What a spectacular
stem creature! Oh my goodness, I'm beside myself. This must be one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen come out of a stem (and I'm just seeing the photos, having never seen it in real life!). Your first photo does such a good job of capturing the habitat and feeding sign of this animal too.
