It's always rather special to find an orange Nucella Lamellosa, or Wrinkled Dogwinkle, especially one as pretty as this one!

The eggs of the Nucella Lamellosa, Wrinkled Dogwinkle, always remind me of honeycomb, though they're known as sea oats.

I saw groups of these egg sacks nestled amongst the sea snails in patches, I am almost certain that these are the eggs of the sea snail.

Groups of these sea snails covered the larger rocks in the intertidal area. They seemed to prefer the eastern side of the rocks where they where found in greater numbers.
