treasure hunting in tidal pools

feather in tidal pool

While I was in Oregon two weeks ago, I fell in love with tidal pools. It's such a fun to look for small creatures with strange shape and wonderfully psychedelic colors in them! At first you might not see anything at all in tidal pools, but after a while, when your eyes know what to look for, you realize that the pools are literally filled with tiny creatures, busily moving around and dreamily bubbling. And the hunt is always rewarding. This feather, barely submerged in the retreating sea water, is my favorite finding at Yaquina Head State Park.
