Watery Wednesday: No Oil

This 11-year-old boy was visiting S. Lido Park beach with his family from Bradenton, just north of Sarasota.  He was absolutely captivated with this seashell.   As it turns out, a large crab was living inside it.  His mother told me he loves seashells and spends most of the time at the beach searching for them.  Once he discovered this shell was someone's home, he gently placed it back in the bay, which is still oil free.  To see more Watery Wednesday captures from around the world click here.

There is something very interesting about his level of fascination, as if nothing else exists in that moment. Neat photo!

I agree with LD's comment about being lost in wonder. I hope he never loses his interest. Lovely shot.

I've got my fingers crossed it stays oil-free.
