Nikon has posted Basic Underwater Photography Tips. Can anyone confirm that they have ever seen this sea star on this soft coral? I don't think so... I think Mr. Wollcott Henry has some 'splainin to do. And I say shame on Nikon for not better vetting their photo pros more thoroughly. http://bit.ly/H1Dkrl Nikon Underwater Photo Tips

Well.. it is not a soft coral... but, no, that sea star would never do that. The coral is Euphillia ancora and I believe the sea star would have had a difficult time getting off the coral, let alone getting on there in the first place.

The article is a bit trivial, isn't it? And, considering the number of people working with Nikon gear, the photographs uninspiring as well as unnatural...
