Last defiance of supper

It's the harvest moon at the moment, which equates to low tides here. So it was out off the shore of a Hebridean island to go find some unfortunate scallops.

They're an interesting creature. They get around by shooting jets of water out of their shells. This works well when submerged. However, it's a bit of a design fault for scallops when the tide is very low and they are exposed to people like me, looking for a free meal, as it seeks just to make it very obvious where they are. Here's one from earlier today:

In the net, then in my saucepan.
