Default Shell collecting on Sanibel Island, FL

Figured I should show the beach after being on Sanibel for the month of June, 2015. Shelling was pretty good, but for a month, Connie didn't find as many spectacular shells as she had hoped for. And fyi, no, we didn't collect any live shells.

I took video of the live lightning whelks for a reason. They turned out to be an unexpected danger on the beach. They stick the small end of their shell up out of the sand, just enough so that if you aren't careful you will put it into your foot. Remember how they suggest that you shuffle your feet to keep from stepping on a stingray? Well imagine catching one of those whelk shell points between your toes while doing that shuffle. Trust me, it hurts like hell, and you start thinking about how wise it is walking in the water while your foot is bleeding. And Connie got one of her feet gashed as well. Got to the point where we were finding them and tossing their asses further out into the surf to keep from stepping on them on the way back.

Anyway, there are a bunch of still pics of the shells Connie kept to take home at the end of the video.
