i like this and know my parents could name this but hard as i try i can not get them to join panramio by way of suggestion crop so its only the blue snail and the moving water top left cut out the sea weed.

it's a moon snail , more specifically a Northern Moon Snail - probably much drabber than anything you'd have there. I'll also crop it and post that. But in this one and the one to the left, I liked the way the flash highlighted ripple pattern on the water ( it was only about 8" deep here.)

Well, Wow! I have never heard of that before! Fascinating! And so lovely!

Thanks, Jean! I was sure surprised to read that they can totally cover themselves with their mantle. Don't think I've seen that. In early summer, the egg casings in that link are all over the beach here. Actually, I could never remember which critter they're from, so I was glad to find the link, too!
