And you have found another one Maya :))

These little shells are very common and are called limpets because they stick very tightly onto the rocks. I was amazed at the colours of them, and I'm so pleased that you are too. Thank you so much for your vote.

Greetings, Amelia

I am totally shocked and horified ~ I had noticed today that this very beautiful shot had gathered up a vote or two and I had made a mental note to come back to it myslef to vote later ~ here I am and what do I notice ???? A tag dear macro friend ~ not just any old tag but a March Contest Tag !!! How can I compete for maltesers now :((( I shall ignore the tags completely and hope that I find the elusive fifth before the moon wanes.

In the meantime here is a macro vote ~~ ciao nick
