JPEGS of the week #67 - ladiving
Jonathan Rodda

Colobocentrotus atratus, or Shingle or Helmet urchins, also known as "ha'uke'uke kaupali" (means “cliff-hanging”) in Hawaiian

Tidepools at Sheraton Keauhou Resort, Big Island of Hawaii

Nikon D100, Nikkor 80-400mm VR

(Comment from Dana Rodda: At first I thought these were some kind of strange sea star, but they are actually sea urchins that have modified spines.  They cling to the rocks like glue.)
