    Derek,
    lovely stuff, the second pic is marvellous. you concentrated on the sky and it works.
    The last one , large size looks like a 3 fisted person clawing a way out of the sand! The shadow does it.

    I thought Crepidula Fornicata was another name for Dirty old man (Berlusconi? Me?)

    Talking Re: At the end of the day.

    I think you are all in the right area picking up on the fornicating. They are sequential hermaphrodites living in a stack [imagine spoons stacked] where the largest & oldest are female and the smaller ones at the other end of the stack are male. As the older females die and drop off, the younger males change sex to replace them.
    So many animals [and even some plants] are much more inventive than humans Sorry if this is more information than you wish to know

    Getting old, time to change, but wife still alive!

    I don't think I would like that anyway.

    Re: At the end of the day.

    Ho ho ho, this thread is becoming more and more interesting! But, truly Richard, the life style of Crepidula Fornicata apparently is the most inventive of any living organism I've come across. Thank you for this very, very interesting information.
    And you, Seyhun, what you wrote is food for blackmail...
    Cheers,
    Osman

    And to think it all started with 4 pictures, it is amazing what fonts of knowledge are available on this forum.
