An astounding form of coral are the majestic gorgonian sea fans. These amazing constructions are made up of tiny creatures which form a colony. Some, like this one, are over three metres wide. They exist jutting out from the reef such that their massive surface area is at right angles to the ocean currents, enabling them to feed on plankton as it passes along the reef. Found across the top of Australia including Ningaloo Reef, Rowley Shoals and out to Christmas Island and Cocos Keeling Islands.
