Waste not ...

It's not only the hermit crabs who use leftover empty shells:

Orange-striped green anemones, Diadumene lineata, in empty barnacle shells.

These tiny anemones are quite mobile, and flit from wall to rock to shell to seaweed, always seeming to search for variety. Or maybe safety; these ones are staying put. No-one steps on them, no-one tries to push them aside.

Room with a view.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
