Whitemargin Stargazer (Uranoscopus sulphureus): So named because it typically lies hidden in the sand with its eyes pointed straight upwards, this strange fish lies in ambush waiting for prey swimming overhead, luring them in with a wormlike structure on its tongue and then blasting out of the sand to feed. by sbailliez on Flickr

Blue-rayed Limpet (Patella pellucida)
…a species of true limpet that can be found on eastern Atlantic coasts from Norway to Portugal. However, it is absent from the Baltic Sea, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands. Patella pellucida typically inhabits and feeds on brown algae of the genus Laminaria. It is also known to inhabit Fucus serratus as well.
Finished my Cornish fairy tale project! Based on the story of the Mermaid of Zennor. This is my contribution to a collaborative project with Josh Oliver and Tashi Reeve - inspired by our time studying in Cornwall.
Now that’s my kinda story!
Down into the cove
HNG. I want this near my future permanent home!
