The beehive

This beautiful, actively venting carbonate structure resembling a snow-covered Christmas tree is about 3 feet high. "The beehive" is perched precariously on the near-vertical side of the 200-ft-tall Poseidon tower. Older light gray carbonate cut by white carbonate veins in the background are on the side of Poseidon. Image courtesy of IFE, URI-IAO, UW, Lost city science party, and NOAA.
