Close relative of dinner tonight (delicious Sea Scallops from Block Island Sound from our local fishermen at Stonington!)

This was from the July 3 dive. Very cooperative subject for playing with the new macro port. I have always loved the eyes of the scallop - easily the most majestic of the bivalves.

this is just the shell, but they are scattered all over the beach. This one also had a hole drilled through it. Evidence of a moon snail?
