Beauty in the Mud by Arthur Kingdon (UK) in Loch Duich, Scotland, UK Easter 2018 found me diving in Loch Duich on the west coast of Scotland. My target subject was the fireworks anemone, but while searching for them, I spotted a length of plastic pipe lying partially buried in the mud. Moving cautiously to avoid stirring up the silt, I reached the open end and found this collection of marine life. A long clawed squat lobster posed proudly outside his man-made home, which he shared with numerous brittlestars, while dainty sea loch anemones decorated the entrance.
