This shell was on the tide line on Fahan Beach on the Inishowen coast of Lough Swilly, County Donegal, Ireland.

After a sunny Spring day we were walking the tide line in the early evening and this was one of the little things I spotted along the way.

I am told shells like this are called “Angel Wings” in some places.

    Yes, it’s often the smallest simplest things that can be so beautiful isn’t it?
