kimberley131 Scallop eyes

kimberley scallops, scallop eyes, nature photography, Kimberley

kimberley131 is a photograph of the many eyes of a scallop shell.

These bivalves propel themselves through the water by opening and closing their shells and creating a water jet to move them around.

The blue eyes on stalks are actually simple functional eyes that give the scallops...

...a great field of vision, all around the shell...

...as it jets its away through the water.
