It is really fun to go to low tides. The one down side is that we had to get up early but it is well worth it. The Sea Urchins photograph is kind of in fond remembrance of Jessica Whitton. Man, I will miss her.
Butterflies are known for their unusual life cycle that includes a spectacular metamorphosis from caterpillar to a colorful winged adult. They have an erratic yet graceful flight pattern that attracts attention when they pass. The Ancient Greek word for butterfly is psȳchē, which means soul. I particularly admire their symmetry and kaleidoscope of colors.
