Friday beautiful science

The meeting I just returned from was so fun, that I've been looking at photos of more and more of the photosynthetic worms that I heard about. This photo is of Elysia ornata, a member of the family of worms that suck the plastids out of photosynthetic algae, and use them to harness light themselves. Very cool. Check out more photos here.
