    Lovely Lindy – love the shot with the shells clinging to the rocks!!

  3. Lindy Le Coq says:

    Thank you Tina! The shells are live Limpets, a common invertebrate with many local species. Funny — it took me a while to decide which image I would use there — the Limpets sealed the deal on this one!!
