I found this sea urchin shell on the beach this morning. Quite mind-boggling in its design.
It is so thin that the pinkish colour you see is actually the skin of my hand showing through.
This sweet funny face belongs to an urchin of a different sort, Nettie, who is here visiting for a week of holiday camp. She is a German Shepherd/ Jack Russell cross, which also boggles the mind in terms of logistics.
