Escargot in Ray Nash Bay

I noticed earlier today that the water was extremely clear and still in Ray Nash Bay. I also noticed sea gulls patrolling the bay while flying 10-30 feet off the water…. I quickly realized they were looking for large Sea snails located just a couple feet below the Puget Sound waters. I had seen this “perfect storm” before which includes: low tide, clear water and smooth surface water…….I quickly grabbed my Nikon.

I was fortunate enough to capture the entire hunting trip plus dinner.

Down the hatch shell and all!
