[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tulip snail, or Tulip shell is the common name for two or three species of large, predatory, subtropical and tropical sea snails from the Western Atlantic. These species are in the genus Fasciolaria. They are marine gastropod mollusks in the family Fasciolariidae, the spindle shells, tulip shells and their allies.

The word "tulip" describes the overall shape of the shells of these species, which is like that of a closed tulip flower.

A fine tulip shell indeed Siegfried, photographed under good illumination from a detail revealing viewpoint in good exposure and sharp focus. The black BG increases the feeling of depth nicely. I think you haven't seen my latest shell close up, which was dedicated to you my friend.
Cheers,
Mehmet

Mit Deinen Muschelaufnahmen beweist Du, dass man photographisch viele Fortschritte machen kann, wenn man gewillt ist, es zu tun. Für dies ist TN natürlich ideal.
Gratuliere zu dieser wunderschönen Aufnahme.
