You wouldn't want to step on this pointy, sharp-looking object. Or would you? What seemed to be a piece of coral when looking at it so closely, turns out to be a soft sponge that was washed ashore. The original photo is here. Photo taken March 13, 2009.

Canon PowerShot A630 1/60 second F/3.2 8 mm

I will stay clear. Maybe the colour is from the blood of previous victims.
