Turquoise


I'm not 100% sure what species of worm this is, but isn't the color amazing?  This beautiful turquoise polychaetepossibly Nereis grubei — was crawling over the rocks in the intertidal zone.  It was photographed on Bodega Head on 16 May 2017.

It's such a beautiful color! Here on the Olympic Peninsula, we have a huge variety of fascinating marine worms, including this rainbow-like polychaete I found a week ago:
