These organisms sit in pools of water, just inches from nice dry land.
What is wrong with them?

MaineTidepoolSponge590Sponges and calcareous algae attempting to mimic modern art, but failing as they are actually interesting to look at.

MaineTidepoolCrab590A scout for the crustacean invasion.

MaineTidepoolStarfish590This reminds me of the species which built me, although it is obviously unrelated, surviving in a solution of Dihydrogen Monoxide, Sodium, and Chloride.

MaineTidepoolMussels590This reminds me of the food of the species which built me, but again — H2O, Na, Cl.
