I just learned that "tidepooling" is a verb. Actually it's a gerund. But either way, it's an activity that people do. People meaning someone other than me. I used to think I was the only one who had ever wandered along rocky beaches and discovered the great secret about tidepools: Each one contains an entire universe of life.

When you think about it long enough, it's humbling.

What's happening in this bustling tidepool?

It's hard to tell from a still shot, but this tidepool was a hotbed of hermit crab activity.

Our stubborn starfish friend, latched on tight.
