This vibrant image illustrates the colourful coral reef habitat as found in Anilao in The Philippines. The architecture of the reef is formed by a variety of organisms such as soft corals, encrusting algae, sponges and sea squirts, to name but a few. A shoal of small orange anthiids, relatives of the big rock cods, are seen here swimming overhead.
