Finally go to use my slurp gun where it was designed to be used, but the stupid gasket wasn't tightening correctly so I wasn't getting much suction. Nevertheless, I did manage to slurp out the pretty scale worm, which is either Hesperonoe adventor (commensal with fat innkeeper worms) or Hesperonoe complanata (commensal with both fat innkeepers and ghost shrimp), so I was in the right area. Rough spots on the elytra seem to suggest the latter.

I thought this was a strange polychaete worm, and didn't understand that the tattered end was actually the "feathery" part of a featherduster! I found it under a rock at low tide. I wonder why it left its tube?

A leech searching around inside a wood frog (Rana sylvatica) egg mass. I took a video for about 15 min, and didn't see the leech actually ingest any of the eggs.

Description from Wikipedia

The annelids (also called "ringed worms"), formally called Annelida (from Latin anellus "little ring"), are a large phylum of segmented worms, with over 2,000 modern species including ragworms, earthworms and leeches. They are found in marine environments from tidal zones to hydrothermal vents, in freshwater, and in moist terrestrial environments.They are bilaterally symmetrical, triploblastic, coelomate organisms.They have parapodia for locomotion. Although most textbooks still use the traditional division into polychaetes (almost all marine), oligochaetes (which include...
