It was another beautiful morning.
We ran across a live lightning whelk before the sun came up, and realized that it was the first one we had seen this week. In fact, we saw very few live shells...I hope it is just a seasonal thing! I carefully buried him back where I found him (after his photo shoot)!
On the way back home, Hubby stopped at the beach under the causeway bridge so I could look for some tellins! It was a successful trip, I got quite a few both white and rose tellins!
I got at least one winged oyster every day this week!!
|Another winged oyster!|
Notice how small most of the shells are! I tried to make sure there was a ruler in each pic to show scale. I love the minis!
|Many mini fighting conchs, and tulips|
|One of my favorites....horse conchs|
|Double jewel boxes, and tiny cones and buttons|
|An array of Nutmegs the Hubby found...|
