I am loving this series...beach combing is the best fun...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It really is! And when I got to the spot where these snails were gathering - it was like an invasion - I just had to capture them, too!

Quite a treasure trove of seashells captured here! I love the low PoV and the DoF.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: The top image are an invasion of live snails! I have no idea why - but there they were, gathering around like it was a conference of some sort! smile
An interesting pairing...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Both edibles, I'm guessing?! smile
I just thought of how these shells on the beach (in the top image) could actually start walking towards each other while the tide is out, Elizabeth. HA! My imagination is suddenly going wild. grin
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Well - they were actually slithering around each other! They must have found something interesting to eat in that area! Slow as they are, it was fascinating to watch!

That bottom image is quite gorgeous. Just look at the shape, textures, colours..
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks, Chris - I'm glad you think so! It is a really beautiful shell, for all the reasons you mention!

Great DOF on that "family" on the beach, Elizabeth. Shells of mussels are so photogenic.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Astrid! I hadn't realized mussel shells were so pretty!

Perhaps the feeding was good just there, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: There must have been something, Lisl - you're right!

Another shot where the depth of field makes this for me. There must be rich pickings here for many species.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Alan! Much appreciated!
I do think this beach is very rich in flora & flauna

I particularly like the first image, they look as if they are gathering for a convention - it would be great to set up a time lapse.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: They do!! There must have been something good to eat around there...
You would certainly have fun with this scene!
I like the unusual shot at the top.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Brian!

Two great pictures. The have me remembering picking up seashells on the beach with my grandma.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you, Louis! What a lovely memory!!
I wonder what a French Chef would make of this snail gathering. Wonderful image, Elizabeth!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile They're probably too small.... good for them! smile
Thank you, Beverly!
