Synchronized Mussels

I found this group of mussels on a piece of driftwood washed ashore by Hurricane Emily. I was amazed by their seemingly intentional formation of a flower-like shape.

    Great find. Nature’s pretty amazing, isn’t it.

    Technically, I’d wish for just a bit more of it in sharp focus.

  2. Neil says:

    What a bizarre formation! do you think they really wanted to be flowers??

  3. Andy says:

    I think they wanted to be a star but a couple of uninvited guests joined in.

    I think one of them dropped a dime and now they’re fighting for it.

    Wow- very interesting! The flower shape is the first thing I noticed – great find and shot :)

  8. Joe Lencioni says:

    I can’t believe that you just found this. I thought for sure that you arranged them into that formation. Well done.

    orange color on the edge is really bright and vivid…the shapes and lines in this shot work very well together…beautiful composition:-)

    ooh nice, i’ve never seen mussels like that before! They really do look like a flower too.

  13. Saroy says:

    So cool! I love the splash of orange as well.

  14. Anders says:

    cool, good and short dof, and a nice splash of colour as well. it would be abstract to me if you had named it differently.
