Nice capture. You need sharp eyes to spot this one on the beach.

Very nice macro shot, Lucy. The beach is ready for summer.

Hello, Andy, Picturit and Chuck. I enjoy looking on a beach for treasures like this shell. Unfortunately quite a few places round here are becoming out of bounds. The exceptionally wet weather is causing landslips from the cliffs.
