The colour con­trast in this photo is spec­tac­u­lar, but sadly, the rea­son for it is not. A bleached sea anemone glows white against an east­ern clown anemone­fish ( Am­phiprion per­cula) on the Great Bar­rier Reef’s Osprey Reef in this Bob Hal­stead ( ocean­wideim­ages.com) photo. Like corals, anemones bleach in re­sponse to el­e­vated sea tem­per­a­tures. See p52 for more.
