Photographer's Note

One of the 52,000 different types of crustaceans; including it's cousins, crabs, lobster and shrimp.

I spotted these closed barnacles stuck along side a large rock as the tide was out. I liked the texture and how prehistoric it looked.

Interestingly enough; in Portugal and Spain, they are a widely consumed and expensive delicacy known as percebes. Percebes are harvested commercially in the northern coast and are also imported from overseas, particularly from Morocco and Canada.

I hope you like the shot,
- Dan
