Tube worms (Terebellidae) at low tide.

Low water around spring tides (which happen two days after the full moon and two days after the dark of the moon) reveals widely distributed tube worms. Without fatally disturbing one of these sedentary polychaetes I can't be certain, but I think they are Lanice conchilega.

Wow, I've never seen anything like that. How cool! Looks like a wildlife landscape on another planet.
