Perfect and beautiful, The Coquina clam

I find something different every day when I walk the beach in Ocracoke. Earlier this week it was the tiny Coquina clams. There seemed to be so many of them, large colonies or clusters of them. Coquinas look like little gems in assorted sun painted colors; blues, yellows, pinks, orange, purple, white, and some of them striped. Nature makes even the tiniest things perfect and beautiful!
