158. Periwinkles (Littorina sp.)

Subject: Periwinkles are small whelks or sea snails that live in the intertidal zone and tide pools.

Technique: To catch their extreme slow movement on film we used time-lapse video to film them. This shows the movement of the snails 48 times faster than in real time.
