Low tide art gallery

SeagrassesAs is usual for June, the sky this morning was gray and gloomy. However, the ocean was inviting with a low tide of -0.82 at 8:15. Hidden tidepool treasures were exposed for easy viewing.

 

I couldn’t help but add to my mini-portraits gallery with shots of sea grasses, sea anemones, barnacles, algae, sea hares, sandcastle worms (a favorite of mine), chitons, mussels and many more unnamed tidepool invertebrates. For details about local common intertidal organisms, visit the SeaNet website. Enjoy.
