Photo: Sunray venus clam and friends

Our photo of the day comes from The Sunshine State.

Just because it is no longer summer doesn't mean that the beach stops working, as can be so nicely seen in this photo by Bob Peterson. Bob writes of the scene, a "Sunray venus clam (Macrocallista nimbosa) and scallop on the beach at Lovers Key State Park. On a good shell beach, every tide and every wave reshuffle the deck, constantly creating new and colorful compositions."
