Expolring the world around us

Some finds from our nature walk this week.......

:: These creatures were still alive on this branch of bamboo that had washed ashore. They were so cute coming in and out of their shells. I don't know what they are. Anyone?
:: The kids had fun picking up jellyfish remains on the beach. Here Jetta is holding a stack of 4 mesoglea jellys that have had their tentacles beaten off by the waves.

:: Pilot almost tripped over this larger jellyfish which appears to be a "mushroom cap jellyfish." (Rhopilema verrilli) I was told by the Beach Hunter.
All in all we had a wonderful morning exploring our world.
