There were a handful of these characters roaming around the boulders at low tide a couple weeks ago here in Bellingham, a rare sight on our beaches since they’re usually found along the outer coastlines (for those who don’t know this area we have islands between us and the open Pacific Ocean). Their beaks positively glow like lightsabers against the muted colors of a cloudy day!

Much thanks to Rowena Kleen on Pixabay for the wonderful reference photo.
