Good morning all, I have a macro shot of the beautiful root-beer colored polyps on an Endangered elkhorn coral that I shot right out in front of the Substation. We have only one live elkhorn on our small reef, it sits clinging to side of a boulder at around 25-30 feet and I see it overtime I head out for a dive with the submersible.  MORE
