Sea-Scorpion - Myoxocephalus scorpius
We did a bit of rock pooling up here as the weather is fine here. while the rest of Scotland deals with the winter storm "Doris". Dave Wheeler our local meteorologist said we may be having the best weather in the UK at the moment. We found crabs and Brittle-stars... but we have the most pride in who can find little fish species. together we caught 4 species, Sea-scorpion, Shanny Blenny, Butterfish and Five-bearded Rockling. What fun!
|Shanny Blenny - Liophyrs pholis|
|Mermaid Purses - skate egg cases|
|Henry looking at the Shanny Benney I caught after turning over a big rock.|
|One of the big fat Five-bearded Rockling Henry caught.|
|Unusual Limpet, a smooth rainbow mother of pearl surface,|
like I have never seen before. Maybe a new species for me?
|The only two I have found? so one is no a fluke...|
|The searchers on the shore.|
|Himanthalia elongata - Buttons|
|As seen and found on the South Harbour Beach.|
|This seaweed reminds me of Frank Gehry Architecture.|
|Purple Pink Anemone|
|Kiss me again!|
|Love... Giving it the boot for perspective.|
