Caption: Barnacles. Coastal rock covered in barnacles (class Cirripedia). Three limpets (order Archaeogastropoda) are also seen. Barnacles are marine crustaceans which cling tightly to rocks and other surfaces. Each is attached head-down to its substrate and is protected by a shell. When covered by water, the tip of the shell opens and the barnacle extends its modified legs to catch plankton from the water. Limpets are marine gastropod molluscs which feed on algae. They attach themselves to rocks for protection when not grazing on algae. Photographed in Pembrokeshire, Wales.
