Life in the intertidal zone is pretty amazing. Barnacles, algae, molluscs, anemones, etc., have to be able to survive drought twice a day, and to be able to hang on during the pounding surfs the rest of the time. This little patch of intertidal ecosystem was photographed last summer near the South Jetty of Florence, Oregon.
