The stars were aligned and it was a wonderful morning of walking in the mud. Many excellent shells were collected and NO live shells were collected. Walking the flats is always a learning experience. Kathy and Carol were excited to learn about this unique ecosystem. Carol made many new finds and Kathy loved just being out there. Carol found a beautiful true tulip, rose tellins and a few whelks. Kathy also found a few whelks, Morton egg cockles, a perfect banded tulip and many more. It is always fun to see the shells live in their environment. It was a beautiful morning with two happy shellers.

Those shells look huge. I like the shark's eye the best.

What is the third picture down? Extreme close up of something??

Oh my goodness! What a day you had! Beautiful variety of photos. I'm dying to know what the third picture is too. I googled images and can't find it anywhere. Some kind of larvae?

The number 3 photo is something I am still working on identifying. I will let you know as soon as I find out.
