'Barnacles' 18x18" oil pastel; Kathleen Faulkner

The lowly barnacles 
We see them everywhere around here, on rocks, piling, boats.  The little aliens that we don't think twice about.  

The barnacle attaches to hard surfaces with the top of it's head 
to live there forever.  
When the water rises,  the  dancing feather 'legs' come out and wave the food in.

Amazing if you think about it.
