Red Algae Textures the Mid- and Lower Intertidal

The lower rocky intertidal is all about reds. There, and even higher, they texture rocks and reefs. But on unprotected shores these places are usually soaked by surf. So if you want to go nose to thallus with the best of the reds, it’s only going to happen on the lowest ebbs. This gallery celebrates those times.
