Rockpoolery @ high water mark.

Egg wrack Ascophyllum nodosum awash in a rock pool.
Bristle worms Pomatoceros triquiter at home on a rock submerged in a rockpool. They build these hard calcareous sheaths around their soft bodies, and live by sieving food particles out of the water.
Upper beach rockpools and seaweed-covered boulders, Kettleness in the background.
