[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
On a science mission to Hudson Bay and Hudson Strait, we came upon this soft coral just 20 kilometers south of Cape Dorset, Nunavut. The scientists on board were so excited that none took a picture and this is one of four shots that I took in the excitement, since I always have my camera just at arms reach. This is a reduced photo, about 1/3 the original size.

Welcome aboard TN, Pierre.
Very interesting and rare picture of a coral... in Ninavut!!! I would have like to learn more about it. It must be a web link for more information?
Good picture and a short but informative note.
Look forward to see more of your work.
Thanks for sharing with us.

I can imagine the excitement that coral in the artic would cause. This is beautifully detailed. Glad you were not so caught up in the excitement that you forgot to capture such a treasure. Well done.

Very interesting Pierre.The jelly like object in the centre is curious.I see you got a starfish with it too.Its interesting you put 'water plants' for a category.We sometimes get stuck for suitable categories.I guess polyps are closer to animals in a way.
Welcome to TN anyway.Look forward to seeing more from you. Steve.
