Got my haul from Norway today: my own weight in stones, twigs, things and shells.
I adore shells. Shells are... just so beautiful. I could pick all of them.
We were sleeping a few hours away from Andenes with a beach you could walk to. And being the child I am I had to go there and play.
That's where I found this stunning-breathtaking-super-awesome-amazing shells. I have absolutely no idea how the species is called or how they look and live whilst being alive....
But look at those glowing stripes! They change with daylight a bit and seem to sparkle. I was so afraid they would just vanish when they dry and was anxious to open the bag where I stored them.
And here they are. Safe and sound and beautiful.

They bring so much joy eventhough I don't know anything about them.
Maybe one of you knows their name or at least the planet they came from? :P

I found a fitting ID! :) It is a blue rayed limpet or

Patella pellucida!

Looks more like someone patterned the shells with that blue glowing stuff from sea of stars

Fascinating! I thought at first that you'd photoshopped the blue lines! Can't believe these are real!

That makes me want to draw an alien character who looks like a child who loves collecting shells on the beach 😍😍 if I end up doing it I'll mention you in the drawing
