Microcosms - my most recent work takes a close look at marine creatures and their interactions. These are very tiny organisms living, eating and repoducing a microcosm they thrive in or are trying to survive in. This photo captures the knobbed whelk shells hatching (if you look closely you can see a few of them floating). I rescued two whelk casings that were washed ashore and almost completely dried up. Losing their anchor and unlatching is often caused by “nourishment” to the beaches when sand is vacuumed into pipes to keep beaches from erosion and disappearing.
