Lottia caught my attention, but dang, that gorgeous Lessoniopsis.
In the moment, I was so distracted by the limpet, probably Lottia pelta, I missed the beauty of Lessoniopsis. At their base, the blades look soft and loving.
Behind the limpet (it’s facing left here), in the center of the image, there’s another thing I missed. Can you see tiny raspings on the kelp stipe? My guess is these are feeding scars left by the limpet.
