Hello Lou,
A very good photo of this spiky Sea Urchin.
I don't know its name either but it is beautiful I agree.
Thanks for sharing.

Ciao Laurens, lovely sea urchin well captured with perfect focus, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio


Interesting beasts, I did not see such yet.
Thanks for sharing.


A fine sample with curious, heterogenous spines Laurens, to demonstrate the tube feet and the spines in more natural positions, you might photograph this specimen in a shallow container with 7-8 cms of water, then the result would be spectacular!

Hello Laurens !
How do you do to always find such extraordinary creatures ? This sea urchin is wonderful, with all those sharp spikes, it looks impressive - reminds me the one time, some years ago, where I walked on an urchin with bare feet, it was so painful ! :-) Back to your picture, I really like all the details, really an excellent documentary picture in an animal we do not see very often. Very well done !

Interesting picture of urchin and eggs,I never had seen pictures like this before. Excellent sharpness to show all details of this itchy creature and a pleasant neutral background.
