Hidden in its shell

Strombus alatus

I had been walking for hours on the enchanting white beach of Sarasota, and I was looking for some photographic stimulus, when at a certain point I lowered my eyes to the shoreline and saw a wonderful shell from a very particular shape, I was immediately fascinated by its colors, in the lowering myself and picking it up to observe it closely, my supore increased because of its presence there was still its occupant, who, intimidated by my present, shut himself up and began to show me his claw, to which I laid him on the beach and started to perform these beautiful shots.
